This heart-warming story describes how Ajax was trained to be one of the very few kea detection dogs in the world and tells of his various escapades in the unpredictable wilds of the steep back-country, including flying in helicopters, working in blizzards, heavy rain and dense fog, escaping from angry wasps and sleeping out in the bitter cold. The strong connection between Ajax and Corey has proved vital to their survival and the important work that they do in the steep high country throughout the South Island searching out kea nests. Their part in the kea conservation effort is essential and both Ajax and Corey can rightly be called conservation heroes.

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. This 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. It is a unique and special book, a tribute to this ruggedly beautiful island and the community that love it.

$30.00 NZD
ISBN: 9780947503802
New Zealand's best-known and, arguably, best-loved poet, Sam Hunt’s latest collection Coming to it: Selected poems is is intended to replace both Doubtless: New and Selected and Knucklebones: Poems 1962-2012 (both out of print) and to ensure that a substantial selection of his poems remain available to the general reader. In Coming to it, a broad selection of Hunt's older poems sit ahead of his more recent work from Chords (2011), Salt River Songs (2016) as well as 19 brand new, previously unpublished poems written in 2018. As always, Hunt's unflinchingly honest, elegiac and moving poems roam around familiar themes of family, friends and lovers; landscapes and the play of the weather; and the challenges of ageing and mortality. Sam Hunt has had a remarkable and enduring career, and Coming to It is a fitting tribute to the quality of his poems.

$50.00 NZD
ISBN: 9781760633578
Written by Nigel Watson of the Antarctic Heritage Trust, and illustrated with Jane Ussher's stunning photographs, historic images and never-before-seen ephemera, this is the first book to fully document and celebrate the contribution Sir Edmund Hillary and the New Zealand team made to Antarctic history, and the legacy they left behind. Hillary and the team were primarily a support act to the British Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic crossing party. By heading on to the South Pole and reaching it before the crossing party, Hillary created tensions, unleashed a media storm and achieved an historic first overland to the South Pole. Hillary even had the audacity to succeed using three farm tractors. The epic journeys of this expedition added another fascinating chapter to the exploration annals of Antarctica. Hillary and his team laid the foundations for New Zealand's continuous, and increasingly important, presence in Antarctica.
HUDSON & HALLS: The food of love HUDSON & HALLS: The food of love
$50.00 NZD
ISBN: 9781988531267
Hudson and Halls were pioneers of celebrity television as we know it today: the naughty, not-quite-normal boys next door who rocketed to stardom on untrained talent and a dream. This is a tale of these two television chefs who helped change the bedrock bad attitudes of a nation in the 1970s and 80s to that unspoken thing - homosexuality. They were captains of a culinary revolution that saw the overthrow of Aunty Daisy and Betty Crocker and the beginnings of Pacific-rich, Asian-styled international cuisine. Their drinking, bitching and bickering on screen, their spontaneous unchoreographed movements across the stage that left cameras and startled production staff exposed broke taboos and melted formalities. They captivated an unlikely bunch of viewers, from middle-aged matrons to bush-shirted blokes. In this riveting, fast-paced and meticulously researched book, bestselling author Joanne Drayton celebrates the legacy of the unforgettable Hudson and Halls.

NO LIMITS: How Craig Heatley Became a Top New Zealand NO LIMITS: How Craig Heatley Became a Top New Zealand
$37.00 NZD
ISBN: 9781760633561
No Limits describes Craig Heatley's entrepreneurial life. It charts the good times and the bad, his philosophies, his approach to currency trading and the significance of becoming the first person from the southern hemisphere to be invited to join the world's most prestigious golf club, Augusta National, home of the Masters. Craig Heatley was still at high school when he created a subdivision on the back of $200 saved from his paper round. A few years later, building a mini-golf course launched a business that in 1986 saw him become the youngest person to have then featured in the National Business Review's Rich List. But it is Sky Television that was his boldest and most precarious undertaking. The fledgling company teetered in the early nineties as rugby suffered its own crisis, torn between its amateur heritage and the forces of professionalism. Heatley could see the answer. Making it happen is part of his story.
