              From out of the housing crisis towards the end of the Second World War, Auckland City's mayor John Allum came up with the idea of turning former military camps into transit housing, filling the gap between inadequate slum areas and better homes provided by the government schemes,... amongst others. The idea took hold nationwide for a time, until the crisis eventually eased. Today, hardly anything remains. A Place to Stay awhile details the stories and the lives at Auckland's five transit housing camps, at Mt Victoria in Devonport, Western Springs, Victoria Park, the Auckland Domain, and Camp Bunn near Panmure, as well as Transit Camps in other areas of New Zealand..

              Cary lives in Concord, a town that shouldn't exist, built to house evacuees from Corstorphine after the meltdown of a nuclear reactor when she was a little girl. She can't remember anything about the meltdown or her life in Corstorphine. No one talks about it, including her paren...ts. Up until now Cary only cared about two things, finding out the truth about her past and getting out of Concord. This year things are different. For the first time in her life, Cary has more than one friend. She's even falling for someone. Will her obsession with the past derail everything? When videos taken behind the cordon surface on social media, they trigger memories from Cary's past and she is compelled to break into The Zone in the search for answers. The secrets she uncovers are not confined to the past, or the boundaries of The Zone. Can Cary separate the truth from the lies, including the ones told to her by her own family? Torn between love and exposing The Zone's secrets, Cary must pick a side

              Fungi have no chlorophyll and obtain their nutrients from living plants and animals, or dead trees, plants and animals. The parts of fungi that we see are called fruiting bodies which grow in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours, ranging from vibrant to neutral tones. They are ...composed of densely compacted filaments and all produce spores that are spread by the wind or insects. New Zealand has thousands of fungi species. Many are undescribed with only approximately 6,500 having been reported. Some are exotics that have been brought to New Zealand by humans. Not all fungi grow in our native forests, some grow on sand near the beach, in pine forests and in our gardens.

              Songs of the Pegasus Possums

              The book is a collection of songs that present an amusing, cheeky though affectionate take on all aspects of a vital New Zealand community from children in school (Precious Pegasus) through senior gatherings (The Friendship Club and the Jacuzzi) to social sharing (Partying in Peg...asus) and our heritage (Wetlands Waiata). You'll meet Trev who finds himself incarcerated in a public toilet and Pete the disillusioned speedster or Merv and May who battle a troublesome Jacuzzi. Though "Songs of the Pegasus Possums" focuses on Canterbury New Zealand, it really reflects every tightly interwoven enclave up and down the country, each of which possesses its own particular fabric while getting on with the living; regions that exhibit the happiness and warmth of fellowship that their enthusiastic inhabitants generate. The songs provide an opportunity for readers to join in rhythmic recitation while celebrating life in one of the most beautiful corners of God's creation.

              On 25 March 2020 New Zealand went into lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19. For the next five weeks our 'team of five million' endured the unprecedented experience of being required to stay home to save lives. The lockdown was different for everyone - for s...ome it was a reprieve from ordinary life, even a holiday; for others it was a challenging, at times harrowing, experience. Anxiety, boredom, fear, frustration and loneliness became daily companions for many. Anxious Autumn tells just a small part of this nationwide story: how one couple in a provincial city lived through a strange and historic period, when the traffic stopped, the skies cleared of pollution and the natural world reasserted itself.
