Harold Wellman: A Man who moved New Zealand
by Simon Nathan (2005). 

Victoria University Press, with financial support from GSNZ.

 A limited number of books is available at a special price $20. This book usually retails at $49.95 in bookstores, however Simon Nathan has generously donated some stock to the Geological Society of New Zealand.  All proceeds from the sale of the book go towards helping GSNZ produce more publications about New Zealand geology.

The most influential geologist of the 20th century, Harold Wellman (1909-1999) was the first to recognise the Alpine Fault. Because he initially had no formal academic training, Wellman started with few preconceived ideas, and based his thinking on what he observed in the field. He acted as an inspiration and mentor to many young scientists in the DSIR and at Victoria University.
