Chris Maclean ‘owns’ this region, the hills and ranges. His contributions to publishing are to be commended and a strong, vibrant backlist of titles reflect his outdoor experience. His book Tararua – the Story of a Mountain Range is out of print but still highly sought after and a prized possession if you manage to catch one.
This new book is a memoir of writing and publishing in New Zealand.
Maclean tells the stories behind his successful non-fiction titles – the challenges, rewards, formulation of ideas and sheer hard work, grit and determination to see the projects through to completion. He reflects how unique writing and publishing are here in New Zealand which is something we can be very thankful for! His books and recollections include: Waikanae, Tararua, Kapiti, Wellington and biographies; John Pascoe and Stag Spooner Wild Man From The Bush. He also collaborated to produce Tramping A New Zealand History with Shaun Barnett. He was an accomplished stained-glass artist throughout the 1970s and then moved to a second career as a writer and publisher. It is the recalling of both of these careers that feature in A Way With Words. Maclean also writes about his new ‘retirement’ focus on facilitating conservation in the Kapiti area. I am sure we can all agree to salute Maclean’s dedication to writing and publishing especially within our region.
