We use it continually, although not always wisely; we play on and in it; and some of us even work on and in it. At times we fear it; at times, marvel at it.

New Zealanders are water babies - most live close to water, whether it be the sea, rivers or lakes. A Land of Water tells the story of our waterways and of our enduring relationship with this marvellous life-giving resource. From the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South, author Pamela McGeorge provides details of the sources of our major lakes and rivers and describes the routes they take to the sea. Along the way, she retells Maori legends and stories of the past, recounts the fascinating histories of many lakes and rivers, and examines the importance they have for all of us today.

The book is generously illustrated with Russell McGeorge's photographs, which reveal the many moods, colours and the sheer beauty of the waterways that are such an important part of our landscape.
