Camera in the Crowd Filming NZ in Peace & War 1895 to1920
Camera in the Crowd Filming NZ in Peace & War 1895 to1920
Filming and cinema quickly won the hearts of New Zealand from the mid-1890s, yet the story of the cameramen and the film they took here and in the First World War has never been fully captured. This attractive hardback brings to fruition years of original research and archival work by esteemed historian Christopher Pugsley (Gallipoli), and features over 200 photos and illustrations.

Capturing The  Light
Capturing The Light
Roy Miller was New Zealand's foremost stained glass artist for 30 years, from the 1950s and hundreds of his windows are on display in churches across the country. A background of stained glass history and a description of how the windows are created, helps the reader appreciate the beauty of the many windows reproduced in this book. The artists who design windows are also often unknown, but the lives of Roy Miller's three main designers, Fred Ellis, Ken Bunton and Beverley Shore Bennett, are portrayed here along with their creations. The first book in New Zealand to portray stained glass church windows nationwide. A valuable record of New Zealand's stained glass cultural heritage and a reminder of the urgent need for conservation of these works of art.

Desperate to try anything to be normal, a nevertheless sceptical Lily agrees to begin work with her physiotherapist in a gymnasium.

Casting off A Memoir 02
Casting off A Memoir 02
At the end of the first volume of Elspeth Sandys absorbing memoir, What Lies Beneath, an adult Elspeth has solved the riddle of her birth parents and begun to piece together the events of her early life and find her place in the world. Casting Off begins on the eve of Elspeths first marriage. She and her husband will soon depart New Zealand for England, joining a throng of Kiwis who chose to uproot themselves from their native land. New attachments will be formed: new loves - of people; of places - will take the place of the old. But the home country will continue to exercise a pull. Backgrounding the personal story in this deeply satisfying memoir is the story of the Thatcher years and the creeping virus of neo-liberalism, the sexual revolution of the sixties, the beguiling world of books -- reading and writing - and theatre. Elspeth Sandys refreshing honesty and her skill as a writer of fiction and drama propel the reader through an absorbing life story that is equally a commentary on the meaning of memoir and the peculiarities of memory.

Caves Exploring NZs Subterranean Wilderness
Caves Exploring NZs Subterranean Wilderness
New Zealanders as a collective share a deep connection with the outdoors. Our rivers, forests, and mountains are part of our national identity but our caves are less well-known and often misunderstood. Though nearly every corner of the country has been explored and mapped, exploration beneath our land is still in its infancy. This book takes readers on a journey into New Zealand's longest and deepest caves, through one of the world's most dangerous cave dives, and prospecting for a totally new kind of cave on a South Island glacier. In Caves: Exploring New Zealand's Subterranean Wilderness, Marcus and Neil share their passion for caving with well-researched narrative and dramatic photos - it's as close as you'll get to real caving without getting your socks wet. Caves are places of mystery where few people dare to venture. They are also a valuable resource both for science and recreation and we hope that by sharing our knowledge, and experience in New Zealand's caves we may inspire others to enjoy and protect them. This book is the first of its kind for New Zealand and no effort has been spared in its making.
It is for both cavers and non-cavers alike, to inspire, and showcase the true beauty of caves and the mettle of those who explore them.

Baxter, Janet Frame, Ruth Dallas and many others - are among the highlights of the book.Unmarried and longing for intimacy, Brasch also writes with great candour about his relationships with Rose Archdall, Rodney Kennedy and Harry Scott, revealing a side of himself that has not been known about before.Central to Brasch's life was the vocation of poetry.
He writes movingly about his own work, and also about his love of nature and the outdoors, including lively descriptions of walkingb the Milford and Routeburn tracks. The book ends with his visit to Europe in 1957, which confirmed his sense that New Zealand had become for him 'a centre & a world'.A lengthy introduction by Peter Simpson and other editorial apparatus guide the reader through this engrossing material.

Chasing a Dream The Exploration of the Imaginary Pacific
Chasing a Dream The Exploration of the Imaginary Pacific
Early Europeans may have believed the world was flat, but by the Middle Ages there was widespread acceptance that it was, in fact, a globe. What remained a mystery, however, was what lay on the "other side". The belief in a vast southern continent went back centuries, and many expeditions set out to find it, sometimes in search of wealth, sometimes to convert its inhabitants to Christianity. This is the story of the voyages into this great unknown, by the Chinese and early Americans, the Dutch, Spanish, French and English; it recounts the exploits of pirates and scientists, and what lead to the debunking of many myths, from the sunken Great Southern Continent, to the idea that in the "antipodes", people walked upside down.
