The Hon Fred Waite's book on South Otago pioneering times covers the areas of Balclutha, Kaitangata, Clinton, Owaka and the Clutha Valley. His writing encompasses the pre-European period, what he describes as the "Frontier", explorers and whalers, the pioneer settlers and early run-holders, the develo[pment of civic and community facilities, economic and commercial development, transport and other essential services.
