Description of this Book
Sea Edge: Where the Waitemata touches Auckland tells the story of Auckland's harbour and varied waterfront in a handsome, heavily illustrated hardback. Well-known author and historian Bob Harvey vividly illustrates the key role that the port and harbour have played in the development of New Zealand's commercial capital, and showcases the present and future of the area as pressure for change mounts and another America's Cup campaign arrives. With contributions by experts in history, shipping and design, and profiles of the key players in the area today, Sea Edge is a fine package that will make a great gift.
