              A handsome, landmark book celebrating the work of three of our literary and artistic heavyweights. The complementary work of artist Grahame Sydney, fiction writer Owen Marshall and poet Brian Turner was first brought together in the hugely successful Timeless Land in 1995. Its pa...ges showed their shared, deep connection to Central Otago, to its vast skies, its wide plains punctuated by jagged ranges, its unique colours and its dwarfing effect on the people who pass through it. Twenty-five years later, this lavish new volume from these three long-time friends showcases a rich selection of their subsequent work, including recently written, previously unpublished pieces. Through their own marks about the land and its people, be it in ink or paint, they offer a love song to the South Island, in particular Central Otago.

              Brian Turner's name is synonymous with Central Otago - albeit a different Central - one well removed from the tourist centres and vineyards. His Central is at the boundaries; watching the local rugby teams, fishing the waters of the Manuherikia, cycling towards the snow-covered H...awkdun Range. It's where he and his neighbours live and work.The author is a devout fisherman, cyclist and passionate ambassador for the great outdoors. Boundaries is peppered with impressions, evocations and recollections of the way life was, and is today. All set within the spectacular hills, rivers and big skies of Central Otago. This handsome collection is charged with evocative and candid prose and poetry and an inspiring alternative vision. Boundaries is illustrated throughout with stunning photographs by Steve Calveley.

              Gracing the Wind: Poems 1966-2016 (Paperback)

              By Boyack, James; Foreword by Turner, Brian

              This is a selection of 90 poems which illustrate the parallel journey of the poet, alongside the newspaper editor, journalist, peace activist and criminal lawyer over a period of 50 years. Poet John Weir has said these poems explore the overwhelming quandry of what it means to be... a human being in a particular time and place - the United States, Tahiti and New Zealand. He has described the selection as well - constructed, urbane, sometimes wry and often heart-felt. Brian Turner, New Zealand poet laureate, in his forward to the book, lauds Jim as a good poet and a damn good man.
