Paradise Beckons


New Zealand has been well served by dedicated enthusiasts who, by their determination and persistence, have established themselves and New Zealand’s name among world authorities. The reminiscences of Frank M. Bateson OBE, FRAS, FRASNZ, a prolific author of scientific papers, a noted astronomer who headed the Mt John Observatory, are told with a straightforwardness and modesty. They record more than a life filled with rich experiences, they also retrace the evolution of New Zealand since the opening years of the 20th century and of life in the Cook Islands where he served with love and dedication.

Published in 1989.
