The New Zealand Listener has been everywhere, featuring stories about New Zealand in all its glory and its weirdness, from the mountain tops to city sewers. This gift book contains a selection of the most interesting Listener articles, written between 1948 and 2005, about a variety of New Zealand places. They are accompanied by Listener archive photographs. The places range from Stewart Island to Kaikohe, via Nightcaps, the Denniston mines, and K Road in Auckland. Along the way, the reader is taken on a visit to the Otaki Health Camps in the 1960s, the building of the Beehive in Wellington in the 1970s, and race day in Kumara in the 1980s. The book is a highly enjoyable slice of life in New Zealand.
