Listing Detail Tabs

The glories of the Hauraki Gulf are a year-round attraction to sailors, holidaymakers, picnickers, and tourists alike; they are a haven, too, to those wanderers in search of peace and tranquillity. Thousands of New Zealanders are even fortunate to live there, along its shores and on its many islands.

Talented artist John Castle and Auckland journalist Mervyn Dykes jointly celebrate the joys of the Gulf they know and love in this splendid new book.

Each island is affectionately portrayed, and a little of its history set forth. Who remembers today, for example, that Rangitoto was sold to Queen Victoria for about $30? Or that Waiheke's original name was Te Motu-Arai-Roa?

But it is the islands and seascapes of today that John. Castle's paintings and drawings capture so. vividly in this book. His attractive work is known to the thousands of New Zealanders who enjoyed his four previous books: Wellington, Auckland, Northland, and Christchurch, and this his latest book should endear him to thousands more.

As he puts it: "I see the Gulf as most of us wish to see it, and as so many Aucklanders enjoy it during the balmy days of summer."
