The Passionate Pioneer




William Deans, an extraordinarily passionate, often overlooked, early New Zealand pioneer, was a prolific letter writer. This historical fiction is reconstructed from the letters he wrote. This story brings alive not only his struggle to survive in this new land, but also fascinating historical events he was witness to.

While William Deans did not live to see the success that his family made of the settlement in Canterbury, the name Deans remains synonymous with the development of what is one of the most productive provinces of New Zealand.
