LAND­SCAPE

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.
