A PLACE FOR THE HEART by Peta Carey, Potton & Burton. Sir Peter Jackson has written the foreword for Peta Carey’s tribute to her late husband, Dave Comer. Appropriately so, for Dave was the location scout for The Lord of the Rings movies. He was also a photographer, a wilderness guide and a man who had a deep love of the landscape, particularly Fiordland. Peta shares that love with others in a book that features some of Dave’s stunning photographs and her own moving narrative. HIGH COUNTRY STATIONS OF LAKE TEKAPO by Mary Hobbs, Potton & Burton. The scenic beauty of Lake Tekapo and the Mackenzie Country in the South Island is an inspiring drawcard for tourists and photographers. But what of those who live there and face the challenges of its unforgiving environment year-round? Mary Hobbs tells the stories of eight highcountry stations that lie beyond Tekapo’s tourist village and the hardy souls who have worked the land from the 1800s to the present day. Gorgeous landscape photography and historic images from family collections enhance this lovely book.
