New texts from the NZETC (September 2009)

The New Zealand Electronic Text Centre is pleased to announce a number of new additions to the texts in our online collection:
A number of these texts deserve further explanation.

Jim Traue's New Zealand Studies: A Guide to Bibliographic Resources is a great initial resource for researchers wondering where to begin their search amongst the holdings of the various New Zealand collecting institutions.

New Zealand's First Refugees, by the the Polish Children's Reunion Committee, features the stories of the 734 Polish children, many orphans, who were offered sanctuary in New Zealand by the New Zealand Government in 1944.

The various texts by Te Rangi Hiroa (Sir Peter Buck) offer valuable resources for those researching Polynesian ethnograpy and culture.

The Conquest of Mount Cook and Other Climbs, by Freda du Faur, is the account of the first woman to climb Mount Cook.
