The Waikato is New Zealand's longest river, flowing from the glaciers on the eastern slopes of the country's highest volcano, Ruapehu.

An extraordinary variety of scenery surrounds the river on its journey to the sea at the Waikato Heads on the west coast.

There is snow and glacial ice, the desolate landscape of desert and tussock grasslands, beech forests, kowhai fringed lake shores, pine forests, rapids, gorges, geysers and boiling mud, wild meadows, tawa and rimu forest, trim pastures and great reed-filled marshes.

Photographer Geoff Moon has captured the variety and the moods of the river on its journey and Sue Miles has explored not only the present but has delved into the past to find the historical links that effect the river and its environment as we see it now.

"This book is about memories - memories of the Waikato River since humans first used it and admired it. It is comprehensive, well written, and beautifully illustrated.

"Having driven down the length of this river many times (for a good portion of the river, anyway, between Ngaruawahia and Cambridge, where the road hugs it, and then picking it back up where the river first leaves Lake Taupo) I've seen the Meremere Power Station dismantled, and many parts of the roads and bridges upgraded.

" And, of course, I have been aware of the tapping into its waters for the Auckland Water Supply (controversial at the time)."

The River: The Story of the Waikato River by Sue Miles with photographs by Geoff Moon is a 1984 first edition published by Heinemann Publishers, Auckland.

It is a large-format near-new 128-page 22x28.5cm hard cover with dust jacket packed with superb photographs and a detailed map.
