            Briefcase, the first book of poems by District Court Judge John Adams, is a collection presented as a briefcase of lost documents and poems, allowing the author to play with a wide range of stylistic ideas around a central narrative theme, producing a melange of poems - in tradit...ional and experimental forms - nd other texts: affidavits, police reports, a Sudoku puzzle, court transcripts, a menu, wills, commentaries. A disordered novella in legal documents, brutal and amusing by turns, Briefcase unfolds a fascinating story and also superbly explores the role of language as a vessel for truth and an implement of justice.

            Based on a true story Auckland, June 1886. Ngati Wai chief Paratene Te Manu spends long sessions, over three long days, having his portrait painted by the Bohemian painter Gottfried Lindauer. Hearing of Lindauer's planned trip to England reminds him of his own journey there, twen...ty years earlier, with a party of northern rangatira. As he sits for Lindauer, Paratene retreats deeper and deeper into the past, from the triumphs in London and their meetings with royalty to the disintegration of the visit into poverty, mistrust, and humiliation.

            New Zealand's Native Trees: A Comprehensive Illustrated Encyclopedia (Hardback)

            By Dawson, John; Lucas, Rob

            New Zealand's native trees are truly remarkable. From the massive kauri - the third-largest tree in the world - the showy pohutukawa and rata, and the ubiquitous cabbage tree to rare and endangered species found only on offshore islands, our glorious and diverse trees deserve to ...be recognised, understood and celebrated. New Zealand's Native Trees is a landmark book that describes and generously illustrates more than 250 species. Beginning with the magnificent conifers and iconic tree ferns, and giving full treatment to the numerous flowering species, including the distinctive southern beeches, the often-overlooked coprosmas and the curious tree daisies, this book is no once-over-lightly. The text for each species describes every botanical feature in detail, along with habitat, ecology and key relationships with other plants and animals. More than 2000 superb photographs illustrate fascinating close details along with wider views of specimens and habitats. Break-out features reveal the interesting stories of the lifestyles of our trees, answering questions such as: Why do we have so many trees with juvenile forms? How do trees survive in waterlogged environments? Why is rimu so important to the survival of the kakapo? Clear-cut illustrations of leaves are included for each species, arranged in plates for easy identification of larger groups, John Salmon's The Native Trees of New Zealand has been a bestseller for nearly 30 years. This new book, by acclaimed author-photographer team John Dawson and Rob Lucas, takes this ever-popular subject into the 21st century by bringing in evolution, biodiversity and environmental threats. It is a beautiful and essential reference for every New Zealand home, school and library.
