"FRESH ABOUT COOK STRAIT is Grahame Anderson's celebration of the unique qualities of Wellington Harbour. His fascinating and comprehensive text, combined with a magnificent array of historical photographs, paintings, drawings, charts and diagrams, convey the author's love and knowledge of this subject."

"Anderson's witty and informed commentary calls upon journals, letters, books and illustrations to support his compelling argument that Wellington Harbour is dramatic and difficult, magnificent and miserable...but never boring. A wonderful book of Wellington's early history."

"This extensively illustrated "appreciation of Wellington Harbour" tells the history of the port of NZ's capital city from the days of the Maori canoe to the container age. The text covers the geological formation of the harbour and every aspect of the port's development from the first European navigators, settlement, the first wharves and jetties to every port related operation and some peripheral connections. Complementing the text is a comprehensive illustrations selection of photos, art, drawings, charts and plans in colour and b/w. The title is taken from a phrase often used in weather forecasts for the Wellington area."
