By Gill, Maria
By Potter, Bruce

Discover the lives of some impressive New Zealand men and women - people who have achieved fame through their exploits as scientists, pioneers, adventurers, leaders, inventors, artists and sportspeople. Where have they come from? What was their early childhood like? What made the...m successful? This collection samples and celebrates 50 iconic and inspiring Kiwis. As well as the greats: Sir Edmund Hillary, Sir Peter Blake and Jean Batten, there are experts on giant squid and orca, powerful women, one of the most famous film producers in the world, and some of the best artists and most successful sports people. Striking caricatures capture the essence of each person on double-page spreads. Photographic picture 'strips', trophy boards, fascinating box panels and timelines build the profiles further. Illustrator Bruce Potter (international edition of The Whale Rider) has teamed up with author Maria Gill, to produce a superb, inspirational resource. This book is a treasure trove of 50 true-life stories for all young New Zealanders to marvel over.
