Rivers and Lakes in New Zealand
Photographs by Graeme Matthews
Text by Kenneth Cumberland

RIVERS
Swift-flowing mountain streams in snow-covered landscapes. Deep, calm, slow-moving rivers beneath bush clad hills. Shallow braided channels in wide shingle beds. Carefully engineered manmade canals.
LAKES
Carved out by glaciers and filled with clear icy water Formed behind massive earth slips or volcanic debris. Created by dams built for hydro -electric power generation.

Graeme Matthewss superb collection of photographs reveals the contrasting beauties of New Zealands unique rivers and lakes.
He explores mans relationship with them our dependence on rivers and lakes for food, electricity, and transport, and our enjoyment of them for recreation and sport. He also reminds us of the harm we can do them through pollution, and, conversely, the havoc they can inflict on us when in flood.
The changing aspect of rivers and lakes during the changing seasons is portrayed and the plant and animal life to be found in or alongside them is also shown.
Well-known geographer Kenneth Cumberland (Landmarks) provides an introduction outlining the formation and use of rivers and lakes over the years and the care required if we are to continue to enjoy their benefits.
