    Title: "very Slummy Area": the History & Houses of Tui Street

    As with many of the small lanes in the Te Aro flat area, North Street, later Tui Street, was full of houses, many of which were built as rental accommodation for the poorer inhabitants of Wellington. North/Tui Street started as a small private right-of-way in Town Acre 258 when this acre was subdivided. It gave access to the small dwellings at the rear of this town acre after houses had been established on the Tory Street frontage.

    This book documents the history of the ownership of the land in Tui Street and the dwellings located along this poverty-stricken lane from its beginnings in the 1870s until the street was sold in the 1980s.

    Title: 202 Great Walks the Best Day Walks in NZ Rev Ed

    There is an extraordinary diversity of landscape and walking challenges in 202 Great Walks. You can saunter by a steaming Rotorua lake, through limestone archways in the King Country, or along an historic Maori trail to the top of the Kaimai Range. There is an island sanctuary at Stewart island, or dripping gold-miners' tunnels in the Coromandel. For something a little different, try out the street-smart stroll that explores Wellington's downtown, or in the deep south a beach walk explores a lonely Catlins coast, troubled by the ruins of a gold dredge and the strange wobble of quicksand. There are all types of walks for all types of people: from those that suit families, to those that are a real leg-stretcher, walking times range from 1-2 hours to 5-6 hours, but all longer walks have a shorter 1-2 hour turn-around option. Every walk has notes on track conditions, walking time and distance and access and facilities, along with a topographical map for each walk.

    Author: BLAKE ROBIN

    “An Affair of the Hart” makes generous use of author Robin (Lofty) Blake’s extensive photographic archive to provide visual relief to a detailed record of his hunting experiences. The result is a 208 page hard cover book more absorbing than a ‘coffee table’ book, and less dry than a wordy tome on hunting.
    Enjoy this honest, humorous and at times poignant story of his hunting life and may we all have good weather to shine on our wanderings.
    Robin Blake has spent his life hunting and enjoying the outdoors, both professionally and personally. With an eye for a scene and a camera to match he has a respectable collection of memories and photographs. Retired and living in scenic Havelock at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, he has found the time to organize his thoughts and photographs to produce an attractive and very readable book aptly titled ”An Affair of the Hart”.

    Title: All Materials Salvaged; the Story of Miniature Hikes & Huts of Welling Town
    Author: KEMI & NIKO

    We are Wellington artists who have run a hugely successful public art project over the summer. The project, Miniature Hikes, consisted of seven miniature backcountry inspired huts located throughout Wellington's wild spaces. Running alongside a photographic exhibition of the huts in the Courtney Place Park Light boxes, the huts were visited by hundreds of locals and visitors to great enthusiasm.
    To conclude the project we have self-published a small coffee table book called All Materials Salvaged. The book tells the individual stories of each hut (their theme, construction and artistic process) in short passages written by us along with plenty of full colour photographs. Other chapters include an invocation by local poet Harley Bell, an in depth review by art critic Mark Amery and a word from WCC arts advisor Jodie Dalgleish. It also includes two sections (on blue stock) showcasing logbook entries from the hut books and images submitted by the public of their adventures to the huts.

    Title: Alpine Chamois Vol.7 Big Game Series

    Bruce Banwell has been involved with the New Zealand Deerstalkers' Association since 1948. He has been a
    member of eight different branches, president of three, executive member of four and secretary and treasurer
    of Southland branch. He is Training Convenor to the National Judging Panel for which he is responsible for the
    training programme.
    His study and previous hunting of deer has found him in almost every corner of New Zealand where deer are found.
    His research into this animal as a species has taken him to the majority of deer range of the northern hemisphere
    from Ireland and the Hebrides, across the Eurasian Continent to Manitoba in Canada and many parts of Asia. The
    European and Asia Minor areas are also home to the various subspecies of chamois.
    As a mountaineer as well as a hunter Bruce can appreciate the skills of chamois, a very agile animal in it's alpine
    environment. When he first started hunting them in New Zealand they were almost exclusively an alpine animal
    unlike today where they have spread down to sea level in some places. Whilst he has hunted chamois in both
    Canterbury and Westland he has never taken a chamois of presentable quality, although he has been present on
    several occasions when his companions have secured trophy bucks.
    His wanderings in Europe and Asia Minor have taken him to most of the chamois rangelands stretching from Spain
    across the Continent as far as the Caspian Sea, including the Pyrenees, European Alps, the Apennines, Balkan
    Ranges, High Tatras and Lesser and Greater Caucasus, regularly sighting and observing chamois while researching
    into the various forms of Red deer.
    His writing appears regularly in journals and magazines here in New Zealand, and other overseas countries,
    including regular contributions to the British Deer Society's journal, Deer. He is a member of the Deer Specialist
    Group of the I.U.C.N. (World Conservation Union).
    The Alpine Chamois, is the seventh in a series of books that will eventually form the official N.Z.D.A. record series,
    covering the top trophies taken in New Zealand for all game animals recognised by that organisation. Each work
    will look at the origin, liberation, spread and establishment, present status, location and how to hunt information,
    as well as listing all known trophies and their Douglas Score statistics as recorded by the New Zealand Deerstalkers'

Terrain within the park varies considerably from low scree hills to heavily glaciated peaks and steep face routes. Climbing within Arthur's Pass National Park could be considered to epitomise all that is mountaineering, with the 'approach' forming a substantial component of the actual climb, and the luxury of aircraft being appealingly devoid from the park. This guide covers broadly an outline of the standard routes on the peaks of both the National Park and the adjacent Craigieburn Forest Park. Additional sections on huts, history, alpine rock, ski touring and potential ice climbs create an invaluable resource for any climber visiting the region.

The variety in this absorbing collection of short stories, poetry and extracts from novels and memoirs shows that while Auckland may not always have been desirable, it has certainly fascinated generations of very different writers, who have explored almost every part of this far-flung city. C.K. Stead and Maurice Gee, for example, go west, Tina Shaw and Diane Brown visit the city centre, Paula Morris and Peter Wells haunt the suburbs, while Robert Sullivan and Albert Wendt head south. Witi Ihimaera has skilfully constructed a literary map of the City of Sails: whether you are a tourist or a resident, an enjoyable journey is guaranteed.

    After the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in February 1840 the new Governor of New Zealand, William Hobson, chose the site of Auckland as his new capital and named it after George Eden, Earl of Auckland, who was then Viceroy of India. He also named the hill with the best view of the harbour, Maungawhau, Mount Eden.

    Since that time, the city has thrived, driven by a variety of businesses including a gold rush. Auckland Then and Now pairs up vintage streetscenes from the Victorian era through to the 1950s, to show how the city has changed in over 150 years of development.

    Awatere: Portrait of a Marlborough Valley
    ISBN: 9780947503864
    Title: Awatere: Portrait of a Marlborough Valley
    Author: BROAD HARRY

    The Awatere is the Marlborough river and valley south of Blenheim. It runs from Molesworth Station in the high country all the way to the sea below the township of Seddon, overlooked by Mt Tapuae-o-Uenuku, the highest peak in the Inland Kaikoura Range. Author Harry Broad¿s interest in this area was piqued when he was working on his acclaimed and best-selling book Molesworth, and he has followed through with this to produce Awatere. This is a fascinating and extensive collection of stories that document the multi-facetted, changing face of rural New Zealand, and which explores both the people and the landscape of this area. The upper Awatere valley has many well-known, classic high-country stations, such as The Muller, which borders Molesworth. In the lower valley, there are still many conventional pastoral farms, but the huge change has come through the wine industry. Many people do not realise that the Awatere valley is now the second-largest wine sub-region in New Zealand, with three times the production of an area like Central Otago. This mix of farming and wine has given this area its own unique flavour and character, captured both in Harry Broad¿s stories, but also through the stunning images from photographers Jim Tannock, Rob Suisted and Dave Hansford, as well as a range of others. Awatere will be a beautiful and engaging book, a must-read for anyone interested in Marlborough, or rural New Zealand.

Along the route they take in the history and music of the South, from the War of Independence, to the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, country music, rock and roll and the Blues. Into Mexico then up the Rockies from Santa Fe to Alaska.

    Title: Basin an Illustrated History of Wellingtons Basin Reserve

    Wellington's Basin Reserve is arguably the most famous sports ground in New Zealand. It is certainly the only one that has been granted National Heritage Place status. Since it was created by a major earthquake in 1855, it has constantly been reshaped, modernised and renovated. Through all that time, it has remained one of the major landmarks in the capital city. The Basin, as it is affectionately known, has been one of New Zealand's main international cricket venues for well over a century, and has hosted international rugby league, rugby union, soccer, hockey, athletics, boxing, Australian rules football and marching. In addition, the Basin has hosted non-sports events as diverse as the 1945 VE Day celebrations, the 1908 Dominion Day activities, Archbishop Redwood's Diamond jubilee gathering in 1934, Father Patrick Payton's prayer meeting in front of 25,000 people in 1953, numerous band displays, Maori carnivals in 1900 and 1903, the Concert in the Park featuring Dame Malvina Major in 1994, and a display of ballooning in 1898 by Captain Lorraine, 'the king of parachutists'. Wellington writers Don Neely and Joseph Romanos have delved widely in presenting this pictorial history of the Basin. Many of the images have never previously been published. This is a story not only of the Basin Reserve but of a busy and ever-changing part of Wellington, including the Mt Victoria Tunnel, the Mt Cook Barracks, the Carillon, Wellington College, St Mark's, St Patrick's College, St Joseph's School, Wellington East Girls' College, the Boys' Institute, the Caledonian Hotel, Government House and other neighbouring landmarks.

    Title: Best of Philip Holden

    Philip Holden was one of NZ's best-loved authors. His first book, PACK AND RIFLE, was published in 1971 and detailed his adventures as a deer culler for the New Zealand Forest Service. Encouraged by his initial success he produced another two popular works, HUNTER BY PROFESSION (1973) and BACKBLOCKS (1974). Over the next three decades, Holden gained a dedicated following and reputation among the rural and outdoor/hunting communities of New Zealand and Australia, not just as a narrator of hunting adventures but also as a talented photographer, historian and fictional writer. By the end of his life in 2005, he had firmly established himself as one of New Zealand's most prolific authors, with over 50 published volumes of work to his credit. This book is a beautiful collection of Philip's best-loved stories and photographs designed to continue his legacy and ready to be appreciated by a whole new generation of hunting and outdoor enthusiasts.
