Life and leisure in New Zealand's volcanic wonderland

Few people have a more intimate knowledge of New Zealand's volcanic wonderland than Ross Annabell, a veteran journalist who spent "the best twelve years of my life" exploring the sights and frights of this turbulent and fascinating region, from White Island to the mountains of Tongariro National Park.

In HOT WATER COUNTRY he combines his rare gifts of shrewd observation and whimsical humour with the thoroughness of a journalist's diligent research into the factual background of what he has seen. The result is a book that is at once entertaining and instructive, reflective and prophetic.

There are few features of New Zealand's volcanic plateau which has not explored at some time. He has been muttonbirding with Opotiki Maoris on White Island, deer stalking with the Tuhoe in the Urewera, and fishing for rainbow trout with some of the best-known professional guides in the country.

HOT WATER COUNTRY will interest all New Zealanders who love the outdoors, and will be an excellent guide for the tourist who wants to now what to see and where to find it.
