Sand Between My Toes: The story of surf lifesaving in New Zealand
By Ivan Jackson

Living in a country encircled by the sea, most New Zealanders associate the beach with recreation and happy times. But beaches can also be treacherous places. By the start of the 20th century, death from drowning had become so common it was referred to as `The New Zealand Death'. Combined with the growing popularity of surf bathing, this led to the birth of the New Zealand surf lifesaving movement.

Ivan Jackson, who joined Dunedin's St Clair Surf Life Saving Club as a teenager, has chronicled the history of a movement that has engaged hundreds of young, fit Kiwis for nearly a century. Years of research have resulted in an engaging and entertaining book, rich with the stories of clubs and personalities and illustrated with wonderful old photographs and charming memorabilia.

Sand Between My Toes is a book dedicated to the men and women who guard our beaches.
