"Primeval New Zealand was an avian paradise. Grazing on its grasses and on the foilage of its shrubs were the Moas, which included among their number a veritable giant among birds, standing about ten feet high, though many of the species weremuch smaller. There were no quadrupeds to dispute their supremacy but they were preyed upon by a large eagle, now extinct." - the opening sentences.; 4to 11" - 13" tall
