About Peter Hadden

Peter Hadden, author of North New Zealand: A Natural History of the Upper North Island, is an Auckland-based doctor and natural history enthusiast. While Peter is the first to admit to not being a natural historian by profession, he has spent a lifetime learning about the natural environments of the places he visits. As a doctor, during his training Peter has lived in many places throughout New Zealand, Australia, the United States and United Kingdom. It was the diverse environments and natural features of each of these places - the trees of Western Australia, the Highlands of Scotland - that led him to become interested in natural history. More recently, from his home in Auckland, tramping expeditions have taken Peter to some of the upper North Island's wildest and most beautiful places. Together with his five children, tramping has provided Peter with a way to, as he puts it, "explore many of the different nooks and crannies this land has to offer". And it was for his children's benefit, as well as his own, that Peter started collecting and collating information about the natural history of the places he visited.
