Islands of the Gulf

Whilst this book was released near Christmas, we have featured it here as the tv show has started on tv one on Saturday nights. this book was the original classic of life in the Hauraki gulf and was a bestseller, recording a bygone era that can be found in many new Zealand households, baches and boats. “In 1964 trailblazing author Shirley Maddock and photographer Don Whyte made an extraordinary voyage around the Hauraki Gulf, documenting its people and places. This was a watershed moment in New Zealand history where New Zealanders were given the opportunity to see themselves, not just in the pages of a book but also on screen. It was a time when the life on the Gulf islands was a resourceful one, largely cut off from the outside world.” the tv series re-traces the original 1964 tour from the book and compares the changes. this is definitely a nostalgic pick for store owner Warwick who holidayed in this area in his childhood.
