This is an auction for PROFILE OF A PROVINCE: HAWKE'S BAY, by Beverley Dunlop & Kay Mooney

"Hawke's Bay has its own distinctive character and this book, written and illustrated by Hawke's Bay people, captures the beauty and diversity of the province. It is a celebration of a wonderful part of New Zealand with its fertile land, rugged mountains, wild rivers, high-country stations, wide plains and vivid seascapes. It is a portrait gallery of those who have shaped the province: the ancestor Kahungunu; the great chiefs who faced land incursions led by agents such as Donald McLean; Maori and pakeha traders and farmers; the pioneers of fruit growing, wine making, stock farming and industry; and artists such as Gottfried Lindauer and Rita Angus. It is a valuable guide for those exploring the riches of land and sea: the bush walks, farm visits, Cape Kidnapper's gannet colony, the lakes, beaches, rivers, parks and cities of a diverse and welcoming region. In words and pictures it records the regional art treasures of past and present and surveys the carving, pottery, painting, craft work and weaving which flourish in the creative environment of the province today. The writers achieve a rare balance of entertainment and information and have a fine eye for the unexpected and a gift for seizing the characteristics of the province where they live and work; and the photographers demonstrate an unerring talent for capturing the idiom of their own region in all its stunning diversity."
