Wairarapa - A Place Apart. Text by Michael Wall


Photography by Pete Nikolaison, a photographer who knows the Wairarapa Valley, its coastline and its ranges as well as he knows the back of his own Olympus. Often shooting from the air, as he does on many of these pages, he has spent a working lifetime capturing the moods, from tempest to tranquility, of this place apart. His deep familiarity is counter-pointed by novelist Michael Wall's commentary. A recent settler her, Wall brings a wry outsider's eye to rest on both the delights and the oddities of the Wairarapa, past and present. Together they take readers on a rollicking journey around New Zealand's last great unbeaten track.
