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.

A Maverick New Zealand Way: The essential Kiwi travel companion! A New Zealand adventurer’s engrossing memoir of journeys in her own land, with 625 images.
 
Product Description:
FINALIST IN THE TRAVEL CATEGORY, INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS, MAY 2018

This is not a travel guide. Why? Because you can’t read a travel guide from cover to cover. But you can read Mary Jane’s personal account of her lifelong adventures in New Zealand. 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.



In Mary Jane's highly readable and affordable Kindle, which can be read in color on color screens, 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.



This book is affordably priced at $4.99 right now, but the photos add to download costs, so it will go up in future. The current price is a special price to build sales of what we believe to be a unique product, a readable travel narrative with as many pictures as a guidebook. If you like the result, please leave a review!

Blue Water Kiwis: New Zealand's Naval Story 1870-2001 (New Zealand Military Series Book 3)

Released: 2015-05-19
Kindle Edition (259 pages)

Blue Water Kiwis: New Zealand s Naval Story 1870-2001 (New Zealand Military Series Book 3)
 
Product Description:
In the summer of 1873, New Zealand was rocked by a scandal: Russian terrorists had, newspaper editor David Leckie insisted, taken over a British warship in Auckland harbour and held the town to ransom. It was a hoax, but the moment served 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 joined combat in most of the major theatres, and finally the Cold War. It was a dramatic, exciting and ultimately human story of people, politics, heroism and struggle.

Kiwi Air Power: A history of the RNZAF to the end of the Cold War (New Zealand Military Series Book 1)
 
Product Description:
'Kiwi Air Power' tells the story of New Zealand’s military aviation from its modest beginnings in 1914, through to the formation of the Royal New Zealand Air Force in 1936, the struggles of the Second World War and then the gyrations of the Cold War, wrapping up with the transition to the very different post-Cold War world of the 1990s. It is a story of politics, of aircraft, and especially of people – of the everyday New Zealanders who fought the Second World War, who served with the RNZAF and the RAF, then and later; and who found strengths in themselves that, perhaps, they did not know they had.

Pocket Guide to New Zealand
 
Product Description:
This is a vintage WWII travel guide for military personnel, originally published in 1943. It contains drawings, maps, and background information about New Zealand history and culture. It also includes a glossary of common phrases and slang.

From the book:
“YOU are going to New Zealand. You are going there because it is one of the main bases of the United Nations in the Pacific and one of our principal stepping stones on the road to Tokyo.

“…To begin with, you’ll find a warm welcome awaiting you. The New Zealanders are a hospitable people who enjoy having visitors in their country and guests in their homes. They like Americans and have enjoyed meeting the U. S. troops that have preceded you. They appreciate the help that we have been able to send them but whatever you do, don’t get the idea that you are going there to protect a helpless people. The New Zealanders are doing their full share in this war and have been in there pitching since 1939. They are already fully mobilized. They have drafted married men, for instance, up to age 40, regardless of the number of children they have. They have a tough, if small, army defending their own shores and have sent their own expeditionary forces overseas.

“You are going to see one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Before the war, a favorite topic with world travelers was ‘What country would you like to live in when you retire?’ New Zealand was always around the top of the list.”
