Waitemata: Auckland's Harbour of Sails
by Tessa Duder
Photographs by Gil Hanly

The Waitemata is one of New Zealand's most spectacular harbours. In this book, accompanied by stunning photographs by Gil Hanly and others, Tessa Duder explores the harbour's islands, beaches, and volcanoes. She looks at the harbour's history - ranging from its discovery and settlement by Maori to the arrival of Europeans and their establishment of a capital. The excitement of the harbour today is brought out in chapters on the boats, ships, and ferries that sail on the waters, and on the visitors, races, and regattas that meet here.

This is an exhilarating refresher for those who are familiar with the shores of the Waitemata and for others an excellent introduction full of useful and interesting information.

Tessa Duder is best known as a writer of prize-winning children's novels, and is also an accomplished sailor. Gil Hanly is a well-known Auckland photographer. The book is generously illustrated with photographs, mainly in colour
