Author(s): Paul Little
Everyone has a place with which they feel a special connection - a place in the heart. For some it's a significant site from childhood, for others it's a place they've discovered late in life. In this beautifully presented book, more than 50 well-known New Zealanders tell us about the places that mean something to them. From Cape Reinga to Stewart Island, from a suburban backyard to the ocean itself, it's an often moving, sometimes funny and always joyful celebration of our land and people.
