An environmental, social and cultural history of our association with the Hauraki Gulf tells the story of the gulf through three layers: the underlying narrative that is largely based on published sources; people’s reminiscences, based on their memories of the gulf over their lifetimes. For these, the author interviewed over 60 people whose lives have intersected with the Hauraki Gulf in various ways; over 400 images, both numerous historical photographs and drawings as well as contemporary photographs and specially commissioned maps.

What other are saying about the book:

“With its lovely maps and photos and prose as clear as glass, the book just kept opening up. This is a wonderful book.”  Geoff Chapple, NZ Listener

“This is a beautiful tribute to a stunning part of New Zealand, and one that we should all have on our shelves.” Boat Books
