New Zealand: People, Places and Events that Shaped the History of New Zealand

By James Boyle

Released: 2019-05-15
Kindle Edition

New Zealand: People, Places and Events that Shaped the History of New Zealand
 
Product Description:

History of New Zealand



New Zealand is a country that has forever been admired for its beautiful landscapes – a wilderness that barely seems to be touched by humans. The populated areas are surrounded by forests, plains, rocky mountains – even beaches. All of this gives New Zealand that heavenly vibe.
However, the place we admire today has been heavily affected by its history. People who wanted to farm the land versus people who wanted to keep the land the way it is. A land that, despite the wars it had been through, has managed to hang on to its beauty.
Packed with colonization, war and expansion, the history of New Zealand is something everyone should know and study in this day and age.

Product Description:
In the summer of 1873, New Zealand was rocked by a scandal: Auckland newspaper editor David Leckie insisted that Russian terrorists had taken over a British warship in Auckland's Waitemata harbour and held the town to ransom. It was a hoax, of course, but he did it to highlight New Zealand's growing sense of vulnerability as one of Britain's furthest-flung colonies. So, in earnest, began New Zealand's naval story - one that extended through the highs and lows of the twentieth century: the First World War - when New Zealand naval forces and personnel fought from the North Sea to the Pacific - to the Second, when New Zealand's naval forces and personnel served in most of the major theatres, and finally the Cold War. It was a dramatic, exciting and ultimately human tale of people, politics, heroism and struggle, played out over more than 130 tumultuous years.

Product Description:
In the past two decades, cuisine and culinary history have attracted increasing attention, with both popular and academic books reflecting the growth of interest. Recipes are both sensitive markers of the socioeconomic conditions of their times and written representations of a culture's culinary repertoire yet, despite the vast number of cookbooks that survive, they have not been the primary focus of research projects. Acknowledgement of their potential contribution to our understanding of culinary history has been slow. This book is a first in its field.

FINALIST IN THE TRAVEL CATEGORY, INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS, MAY 2018

In a flowing narrative that comes with more than 600 photos and maps, Mary Jane will make you feel like you have already arrived. And perhaps even that you have known her and her country for years. 


You, too, can discover the stunning back country of New Zealand, through walks, treks, mountain ascents and even a spot of mountain biking. Mary Jane, a self-proclaimed 'Maverick Traveller', sets out on many of the walks and mountain ascents throughout New Zealand's North and South Islands. 


Mary Jane shares her love of travel, trekking and adventure through this thrilling book. Whether you are a beginning trekker, intermediate or advanced you will find something in this book for you. 


Learn about native bush and wildlife nestled among a variety of landscapes - glaciers, volcanoes, grassy plains, waterfalls, lakes, vast stretches of ocean and geothermal areas, as well as areas of special significance to Māori, and cityscapes both modern and colonial. 


An interesting account of New Zealand history in town and country as well as a memoir of modern experiences, A Maverick New Zealand Way is the perfect read to inspire you to get outdoors in New Zealand.
