            You can't help but wonder about the stories behind the unusual buildings you see around New Zealand - from cute colonial cottages to abandoned industrial buildings or ghost towns. Nicola McCloy went looking to find out ... who lived there? From basic stone cottages in barren-look...ing countryside to pretty coastal villas, romantic churches and small-town taverns, New Zealand is full of buildings whose back stories have been lost over the generations. Jane King's photographs and Nicola McCloy's words weave the facts back together to present gripping stories of these places and their ups and downs over time. The strength of women, often left to fend for their families with little help or support, and the enterprise of early New Zealanders feature in this fascinating book, which you can dip into as you travel the country or read cover to cover from the comfort of your armchair. Find out about places as diverse as the old School of Mines in Thames, Rush Munroe's Ice Cream Garden in Hastings; Couldrey House at Wenderholm, near Auckland; the National Tobacco Company in Napier; Mt Cook Police Barracks in Wellington; Langlois-Eteveneaux House in Akaroa; Donovan's General Store in Okarito; and the Empire Tavern in Dunedin. With beautiful photographs by Jane King, supplemented with historic shots to show how little or how much some of these places have changed.

            In Great World Wonders, travel enthusiast and writer Michael Turtle offers a curated guide to the best UNESCO World Heritage sites around the globe, each with a fascinating tale and insight into our shared humanity. Opulent palaces let us peek into the lives of the rich and famou...s, while the centres of great empires show the evolution of civilisations. There's the surprising beauty in industrial sites from the past century, and the dazzling buildings that were constructed in the name of love. And through it all is the inescapable influence of human behaviour, with many of the World Heritage Sites directly linked to important historical events and people. From icons like the Egyptian Pyramids and the Taj Mahal, to undiscovered gems like gold mines and ancient rock paintings, Great World Wonders is a beautiful collection and exploration of the best (and sometimes worst) of history. Featuring stunning photography, this selection of the most interesting World Heritage Sites is not just a source of travel inspiration, it's an incredible journey through the amazing story of our world.
