            In 1998, just as South Island iwi Ngai Tahu was about to sign its Treaty of Waitangi settlement with the government - justice of sorts after seven generations of seeking redress - a former foundryman stepped into the pivotal role of kaiwhakahaere or chair of Te Runanga o Ngai T...ahu - the tribal council of Ngai Tahu. Mark Solomon stood at the head of his iwi at a critical moment and can be credited with the astute stewardship of the settlement that has today made Ngai Tahu a major player in the economy and given it long sought-after self determination. Bold, energetic and visionary, for 18 years Solomon forged a courageous and determined course. Now, in this direct memoir, Ta Mark reflects on his life, on the people who influenced him, on what it means to lead, and the future for both Ngai Tahu and Aotearoa New Zealand.

            A landmark book exploring New Zealand's second world war effort through over 800 photographs, many never before published and many live-action shots taken by those at the front. The images span North Africa, Europe and the Pacific, as well as action on the water and in the air -e...very battle and theatre in which New Zealanders fought. The text by one of New Zealand's leading military historians places the images in context. Chapters on prisoners of war, the home front and New Zealand's role in Japan after the end of hostilities in the Pacific round out this rich visual account of a conflict that dominated all aspects of New Zealand life for seven years.

            Rita Angus: An Artist's Life

            Jill Trevelyan won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009 for this magnificent biography of one of New Zealands leading 20th century artists. Now back in print, this revised edition brings the book up to date with new assessments of Angus and in the ...context of the big Royal Academy show that opens in London in November 2020. Rita Angus was a pioneer of modern painting during the 1930s and 1940s. More than 100 years after her birth, works such as Rutu (1951), Central Otago (1940), and Portrait of Betty Curnow (19411942) are national icons. While Angus is perhaps New Zealands best-loved painter, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before this acclaimed and revelatory book. Jill Trevelyan traces Anguss life, from her childhood in Napier and Palmerston North to her death in Wellington in 1970. Drawing on a wealth of archives and letters, she brings to life Rita Angus the person: highly articulate and full of zest, intellectually curious and forthright in her attitudes and emotions, powerfully committed to her pacifist and feminist beliefs and dedicated, above all, to life as an artist. Rita Angus: An Artists Life is generously illustrated with more than 150 artworks and private photographs to bring Angus her private struggles and public reputation and her greatest legacy, her art to complex, colourful life.

            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.
