Coast A New Zealand Journey
By Bruce Ansley and Jane Ussher

A magnificent celebration of New Zealand’s long, complex, varied coastline, written by one of the country’s finest writers, and with photographs by one of its most distinguished photographers. Several times in 2012 and 2013, acclaimed New Zealand writer Bruce Ansley and eminent photographer Jane Ussher climbed into a car for another stage of an epic road trip around New Zealand’s coast. They travelled north and south, east and west, meeting remarkable, sometimes eccentric but always passionate New Zealanders on the way. From surf lifeguards to cray-fishermen, farmers to artists, conservationists to scientists, and everyone in between, in this landmark book Ansley and Ussher document their encounters with affecting words and gripping images. And then there is the coast itself: by turns uplifted, battered, encircling, dangerous, beguiling, sustaining, energising…it challenged and fascinated and moved them. This magnificent book pays homage to the narrow margin between the ever restless Pacific and Tasman and the fragile hinterland we New Zealanders call home.
