Westies Up Front Out There by Bob Harvey (Signed)

N/A

Signed by Bob Harvey
Photographs by Antoine Gasperine

Once a Westie, always a Westie .. . there’s something special about people who have ever lived in West Auckland. It’s as if they have been imbued with a spirit of freedom and independence by the west’s awesome landscape, its commanding hills, rain forest and wild beaches. From Te Atatu to Titirangi, from Piha to Helensville, the west is full of extraordinary characters: pioneers, grafters, artists and visionaries.

Enthusiasm, creativity, tolerance and a ‘can do’ attitude mark out the true Westie. In this book, Waitakere mayor Bob Harvey profiles 60 prominent and not so prominent Westies from all walks of life. Among those chosen for inclusion are rugby legend Michael Joncs, fashion designer Karen Walker, potter Len Castle, Judge Mick Brown, singer Jan Hellriegel, the pioneering Bethells family, writer Sandra Coney, the Lawson quins and Maori leader Pita Sharples. Some surprising inclusions are singer John Rowles, Sir Edmund Hillary, naturists Les and Laurel Olsen and the exotic Mistress Sabrina, as well as some great Westie icons: the black T-shirt, the Holden VS and Lion Rock. In his introduction, Bob Harvey explains what it means to be a Westie and why the area produces so many extraordinary characters. The text is supported by a large number of original photographs by the talented Titirangi photographer, Antoine Gasperini.
