At The Beach
The Great New Zealand Holiday
By Stephen Barnett and Richard Wolfe

Given that the farthest you can ever be from the sea in NZ is something like 130 kilometres, and that the great majority of the country's population lives little more than 10 kilometres from the coast, it's only natural that 'the beach' should assume such a large role in our lives. Along with a passion for sport, the beach is a vital part of our national character.

At the Beach is a foray into many aspects of New Zealanders' relationship with the beach, from the first tentative dips into the breakers and the evolution of swimming costumes, to holidays under canvas and in baches, to surf-lifesaving and the seaside picnic, beach-combing and messing about in boats. The lively text is illustrated with an extensive selection of photographs, graphics and drawings to form a book with appeal to any New Zealander with a love of the beach. And that must mean nearly all New Zealanders.
