Have New Zealanders found paradise? Few would deny the magnificence of New Zealand's landscape; from its secluded bays, and numerous tranquil lakes to its glaciers and the soaring majesty of the Southern Alps, it is always surprising. As the Maori have always attested their country is more than simply what can be seen. It is also its ancestral history, legends, fauna and even its sea life. Travels with Suzy, Doc and Ella is ostensibly the account of two journeys around New Zealand. Though full of its people, their stories and vivid descriptions of its scenery, it is blended with observations that lead towards an understanding of that history and its development into a peaceable cosmopolitan nation. In parallel with these journeys are the Maori and their struggle for recognition and the route of New Zealand's constitution from initial chaos to the fifth most democratic country in the world. Out of this has also blossomed one of the most ecologically aware countries. These paths have not always been easy but this book does not shy from the truth or voiced criticism. Perhaps Kiwis have found paradise. That is for you to discover. The book is illustrated with over 90 colour photographs.
