Abstract:

New Zealand appeared relatively late on the general tourist map of the 19th century. Famous for its exotic flora and fauna, a visible native population, and women's suffrage, it also drew American tourists to its shores. How did American travelers perceive New Zealand and its society? Very few travel accounts by American women were published in this period, but these historical documents offer subjective accounts of the author's time and present individual experiences and views on New Zealand.
