100 Great NZ Wineries
100 Great NZ Wineries
100 Great New Zealand Wineries features many of the best vineyards in the country. All New Zealand's main wine-making regions are described, with wineries chosen not only for the quality of the wine produced, but also for their history, cellar-door atmosphere, awards won and the impact the winery has had at home and abroad. Author Douglas Renall has walked the vineyards, searched the cellars and talked with winemakers and vineyard managers to gather fascinating insights about the viticulture methods employed, the oenology practices used and with the people who work long days in the vineyard and equally long nights in the cellar. Often visiting wineries several times, and always with his camera, he has also captured the beauty and seasonal differences of vineyards around the country.

Air Con The Seriously Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming
Air Con The Seriously Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming
Bestselling author and investigative journalist Ian Wishart tackles the issue of the century - global warming. In December this year, world leaders will gather in Copenhagen to usher in "a new Kyoto" protocol, conservatively estimated to cost taxpayers in Western countries somewhere in the region of US$45 trillion. For many people, this will mean increases in personal taxes of several thousand dollars a year, and/or much higher prices for food, goods and services because of new emissions caps and taxes. With that sort of money at stake, there are several big questions Wishart asks in Air Con 1. Is global warming actually happening? 2. Is it caused by human activities? 3. Is there really anything we can do to prevent it? 4. Are climate scientists and the United Nations telling the truth? 5. What's really behind the push for the Copenhagen Treaty? The answers to these questions may shock you. Air Con is a must-read for every New Zealander, and is the most up-to-date book on global warming available in the world. With chapters like, 'What Cars Did The Dinosaurs Drive?', and 'Fancy A Cold Bear?'
, this is an easy to read title using everyday language to explain the growing evidence against human-caused global warming.

Ajax the Kea Dog A Working Dogs Life in the High Country
Ajax the Kea Dog A Working Dogs Life in the High Country
Together, Corey and Ajax traverse the steep high country throughout the South Island searching out kea nests. Their part in the kea conservation effort is essential and both Ajax and Corey can rightly be called conservation heroes.

This heart-warming story describes how Ajax was trained to be one of the very few kea detection dogs in the world and tells of his various escapades in the unpredictable wilds of the steep back-country, including flying in helicopters, working in blizzards, heavy rain and dense fog, escaping from angry wasps and sleeping out in the bitter cold.

The strong connection between Ajax and Corey has proved vital to their survival and the important work that they do. Ajax is slowing down now and soon his high-country days will be over.

Annette King The Authorised Biography
Annette King The Authorised Biography
Annette King is New Zealand's longest-serving women MP - 1984-2017 less three years in the wilderness from 1990-1993. In her 30 years in Parliament, she spent 15 in government (10 as a cabinet minister) and 15 in opposition. She is a former deputy leader of the Labour Party, and held a number of senior cabinet portfolios. This book will take a dual approach to her life and political career. Annette's career embraces a tumultuous time in New Zealand politics and Labour politics . . . Rogernomics and Lange's independent foreign policy; the 1990s and advent of MMP; the refinement of Rogernomics under Ruth Richardson etc; the rise and nearly fall of Helen Clark; the Clark government (where Annette served as Health, Food Safety, Police, Transport, Justice and Racing Minister); the subsequent 9 years of difficult and troubled opposition for Labour; and eventually the rise of Jacinda Ardern. Annette played pivotal roles in all these eras, often as the peacemaker or as Auntie Annette. She became a mentor for many of the prominent members of the Ardern government and, of course, played a lead role in the 2017 election campaign and subsequent negotiations. The book will give rein to Annette's voice, but also feature other prominent figures including Jacinda. The book will open with the 2017 campaign.

Aotea Great Barrier
Aotea Great Barrier
If New Zealand has everything imaginable within a day's drive, then Great Barrier Island has pretty much everything within an hour. Rugged basalt bays on the west side, a mountainous interior and white-sand beaches on the east coast, serene one moment, savage the next - it's not for nothing the island is called Great Barrier. The book consists of five chapters - sea, beach, land, bush and the mountains. Each of these landscapes is explored through the eyes of 12 different locals, who describe a favourite part of the island and explain why it has special meaning for them. In the process, they capture the essence of a community that is unlike any other. Perhaps more than anywhere else in New Zealand, there is a determination to retain what it is that makes the Barrier special, and discovering, defining what that is, is the theme of this book. Created around Chris Morton's spectacular and evocative photographs, and a thoughtful and authentic text from Peter Malcouronne, this is a unique and special book, a tribute to this ruggedly beautiful island and the community that love it.
