              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.

              Our Game: Grassroots Rugby in Aotearoa (Hardback)

              By Malcouronne, Peter; Gasteiger, Arno

              Our Game celebrates the grassroots of our national gamerugby played by weekend warriors and embryonic All Blacks, far from the steely glare of stadium lights. It takes place in snow and mud in the south, on sun-parched plains in the north, on provincial fields, in back paddocks, ...back lawns and on beaches. This is the origin of the sport in New Zealand, the font of future McCaws, junior Jonahs, mini Meads, and its greatest legacy. As much as it is a sport of the people, rugby is a sport of the landscape. Taking in these themes, New Zealand Geographic photographer Arno Gasteiger has captured the sport, the heart and soul of New Zealand, and the landscape in which it is played. Coupled with an enlightening, humorous commentary by writer and rugby enthusiast Peter Malcouronne Our Game is an honest, heartfelt and at tim
