Fitz : The Colonial Adventures of James Edward FitzGerald

ISBN: 9781877578731

Author: Jenifer Roberts    Publisher: Otago University Press

The story of James Edward FitzGerald, whose energy and enthusiasm contributed so
much to the early history of Christchurch. Orator, writer, politician and journalist, he
was the first Canterbury Pilgrim to set foot in New Zealand, first superintendent of the
province of Canterbury, first leader of the general government, and founder of the Press
newspaper.
From his early years in the Anglo-Irish gentry of England to his old age as auditor-general
of the colony, FITZ is a gripping biography that reads like a novel, breathing new life into the extraordinary man who played a major role in public life through fifty years of New Zealand history.
