In this lavishly illustrated book, Canterbury gardener, Margaret Long, tells the fascinating story of Frensham, considered one of New Zealand’s finest gardens. As though we are right there with her, the reader is taken on a tour through the seasons, listening as we go to Margaret’s thoughts and insights about why this plant was placed here or that tree there, what is behind her choices not just of plantings but also structures, materials, colours. This very personal and yet informative perspective on thirty years of gardening with passion makes for a delightful book to be treasured and shared. Highly acclaimed garden photographer, Juliet Nicholas, has “lived” with Frensham for an entire year, photographing its changes through the months and the seasons and providing a unique insight into the growth and development of these beautiful gardens, as well as capturing one of the most frequently written comments in Frensham’s visitors’ book: ‘The garden is so peaceful’. https://www.book2look.com/book/9780995105324

The autobiography of New Zealand's speedway hero. Few New Zealander's have achieved so much and dominated on a global stage as Ivan Mauger, six times the world speedway champion. Decorated with the OBE and MBE and twice Sportsman of the Year, he never did anything by halves during his stellar career. No modern racer has surpassed his record of success which includes nine other world championship gold medals - in teams, world pairs and long track. Ivan Mauger : The Will To Win, the autobiography, recounts the story of how he and his teenage bride set sail for England in 1957 with no more than a pocketful of dreams between them. After overcoming struggles in the beginning, Ivan spent the best part of two decades rewriting the history books. Ivan was the first speedway racer to win three world titles in succession, he is acclaimed in more than 30 countries and stayed involved in the sport even in retirement.

Great Angling Disasters is a wonderful collection of fishy tales from the past 200 years that will have the reader caught hook, line and sinker. Stories of record breakers that got away, to boats that sank, rods that broke and pike and salmon that ran amoke. It is the ultimate chronicle of those less than triumphant days on the riverbank. The perfect gift for any keen fisherman whether coarse, game or seafishing. “I hooked a salmon on the Bandon at Cork, but I’d been fishing for trout and had on the lightest tackle imaginable. Three flies on the thinnest gut. As soon as the salmon took me I knew I was in trouble but, after his first rush, I thought I had a chance. He shook his head, made a second run and leaped clear of the water. Ten pounds I thought. The fight continued. I saw his silver flank in mid-stream. He was tiring, but then, unbelievably, I saw the ghostly shadow of another salmon just behind the hooked fish. Almost at once I realised what was about to happen – and happen it did. The second fish took one of my other flies and set off in the opposite direction to the first fish. Miraculously, for a few seconds I was aware of both fish still on the line, then, inevitably, they were gone. No one I spoke to in the long years after that incident could ever recall a similar occurrence.” Richard Greene, It’s Later Than You Think, 1888
