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.

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.

Anzac in the Family
Anzac in the Family
Many families in New Zealand have an Anzac who served in WW1. Private Leslie McAlpine could have been any one of thousands of young men who left family and friends to serve his country. He was a fit, healthy young man when he left New Zealand and never completely lost hope that he would get back home. His story illustrates how decisions made in the wider world can affect our lives and opportunities. Using stories passed down by Leslie's brothers and sisters, An ANZAC in the FAMILY shows the pride, the worry and the painful loss felt by them and Leslie's parents.
An ANZAC in the FAMILY follows the lives and eventual fate of Leslie and the other 2,234 men in the 4th Reinforcements - a group that don't feature in many of the accounts of the First World War. The Main Body are well known because they were involved in the landing at Gallipoli on April 25. Later Reinforcements went straight to Europe and fought on the Western Front. Their men wrote journals, published newsletters and took more photos that have survived. But the 4th Reinforcements have a proud tradition. Members fought at Gallipoli, Egypt, Salonika and the Western Front. They did it all. Based on two years of research, An ANZAC in the FAMILY includes a complete listing of all 2,235 men: name, rank, where they came from and, if they were killed, where they are buried.

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.

April 25 1915 The Most Glorious Day of My Life
On April 25, 1915, in the famous Battle of the Landing at what became known as Anzac Cove, Lieutenant Spencer Westmacott of the Auckland Infantry Battalion was seriously wounded.

Architecture in an Expanded Field
Architecture in an Expanded Field
This book is a collection of essays stemming from the 2013 symposium, marking the 120th anniversary of women's suffrage in Aotearoa, New Zealand, and the 1993 exhibition 'Constructive Agenda: 60 years of Women in Architecture in New Zealand - hosted by W+A.NZ, called Architecture in an Expanded Field. Interested participants were asked to send in an essay based on their presentation at the symposium. This volume is a collection of those essays, with a preface by Sarah Treadwell and an introduction by Lucy Treep. As a form of reply to the symposium, an essay by Amanda Reynolds (who wasn't at the symposium) is included. All the contributors to the volume graduated with a BArch from Auckland University and have ended up working in fields separate to, but in some way aligned with, architecture. All the contributors are women. As one of the remits of A+W is to publish the work of women to establish a permanent record of women and architecture in NZ, this volume sits centrally to A+W's aims.

Army Fundamentals From Making Soldiers to the Limits of the Military Instrument
Army Fundamentals From Making Soldiers to the Limits of the Military Instrument
How does an Army recruit attain an identity with soldierhood? What do they give up and what do they gain? What happens when a young officer, indoctrinated in a military way of thinking, is thrust into the academic, free-thinking environment of a university? When military units are deployed in insecure environments to enhance security and governance while facilitating reconstruction and development, what separates the humanitarian from the soldier? And are the roles in fact compatible? The New Zealand Army is facing challenges in recruiting and retaining women - how does the Anzac legend and national identity contribute to that? Can a modern warrior be a woman? Do NZDF personnel on deployment really 'punch above their weight' or is this a myth? What happens when our forces overseas move into policing? All these major issues are addressed in this fascinating and compelling book, in which expert authors delve deep into New Zealand's modern-day Army.As the foreword notes,this book delves 'into some of the seemingly idiosyncratic aspects of the New Zealand Army's culture, value system, enculturation practices and operational learning with vignettes, case studies, and observations that help explain military purpose, action and effect.
It shows how the New Zealand Army's traditions, practices and values seek to fit its members to cope, survive and succeed in contemporary operational settings.'
