            Magnificent gardens of different types from all around New Zealand, with entertaining stories on their origin, inspiration and development - all stunningly photographed. From lush regenerating native bush, through formal gardens and heritage fruit trees, to community gardens and ...a dry garden in Central Otago, there is a place here to inspire everyone. The stories of their inspirational founders and developers are told simply and informatively, and bring the gardens to life. Located from Butler Point, across the harbour from Mangonui in Aotearoa's far north, down to Central Otago and Southland, the varying terrains and climates affect which plants flourish, and the exchange of ideas between the gardeners keep things vibrant and ever-changing.Several of the gardens have been developed by siblings, partners or families, all drawing strength and ideas from each other. After reading this book you won't know which urge is stronger - to get outside and do some gardening, or plan a tour of inspirational gardens of New Zealand.

            Four Kiwis on an epic journey to discover the world and themselves. 'When you're hurting and coughing on a steep incline, it's hard to see or even think of the top, but you just gotta push a pedal at a time and keep pushing.' At Auckland Airport, three young Kiwis began an audaci...ous - some would say crazy - journey, huddled together and wiping tears from their eyes. Fourteen months later, they had cycled 23,000 kilometres, from Bali to Buckingham Palace, across more than 20 countries and adventured through some of the most exotic parts of the world. They battled extreme heat, sub-zero temperatures, culture shock and loneliness as they pushed their bodies to their limits. They overcame injury, illness, heartbreak, and, above all, their own fears and self-doubt. It was the time of their lives. Packed with stunning photography by Sean Wakely, The Big Bike Trip is an inspirational account of self-discovery, friendship and turning your dreams into reality.

            A Queer Existence: The lives of young gay men in Aotearoa New Zealand
               

            A Queer Existence: The lives of young gay men in Aotearoa New Zealand (Paperback)

            By Beehre, Mark

            A Queer Existence is a major documentary project that uses photographic portraiture and oral history to record the life experiences of a group of 27 gay men born since the passing of the Homosexual Law Reform Act 1986. In New Zealand, discrimination in work was outlawed in 1993,... same-sex relationships were granted legal recognition in 2005, and marriage equality followed in 2013. As a result these men have life experiences very different to earlier generations of gay New Zealand men. Even so, gay men growing up today may continue to feel stigmatised, and for many coming out is still a major hurdle. Candid, powerful and affecting, the first-person narratives of A Queer Existence form a valuable and unique insight into how gay men continue to have to step out of the mainstream and face their own challenges as they forge their queer identities.
