In the summer of 1958, physicist Colin Bull, along with a biologist and two undergraduate geology students from Victoria University of Wellington, launched an exploration of the Dry Valleys of Victoria Land, Antarctica the first of what has become an annual expedition spanning the past fifty years.

One Night Out Stealing, Duff, Alan
2 Duff, Alan One Night Out Stealing
Australia Univ of Queensland Pr 1992 0702224898 / 9780702224898 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
184 pages. Alan Duff creates a compelling of contemporary New Zeland. He offers a gripping portrait of the underside of his seemingly calm homeland. This is a world of tattooed criminals and pathetic dreamers who find false camaraderie in booze, bragging and sexual conquests. This book suggests that lost values are the product of class, not of ethnicity. Maori Sonny and pakeha (white) Jube have shared much-flats, crimes and a cell-but it is Sonny alone who makes the slow, sure pilgrimage toward conscience. In the course of the pair's trip from Auckland to Wellington, readers learn their histories and empathize with Sonny's anguish as he comes to recognize the ``social prison'' he was born into. From their burglars' booty, Sonny seizes on a video-of dancers from Soviet Georgia-that suggests a way for him to steal his life back. (New Zealand's poor may be less culturally estranged than their American counterparts.) Jube, however, sinks deeper into depravity, eventually forcing a fatal confrontation.

Potiki, Grace, Patricia
3 Grace, Patricia Potiki
New Zealand Penguin 1986 0140088032 / 9780140088038 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
185 pages. In a small coastal community threatened by developers who would ravage their lands it is a time of fear and confusion - and growing anger. The prophet child Tokowaru-i-te-Marama shares his people's struggles against bulldozers and fast money talk. When dramatic events menace the marae, his grief and rage threaten to burst beyond the confines of his twisted body. His all-seeing eye looks forward to a strange and terrible new dawn. This loose narrative of developers trying to build a resort on Maori land revolves around the family of Roimata Kararaina and her husband, Hemi Tamihana. Although land development is the central theme, Grace, the New Zealand author of several novels and short-story collections, is at her best portraying the lives of her characters, from their daily tasks (eel-fishing and cooking) to the stories they tell‘both real hard-luck stories and ancestral myths. Patricia Grace is one of New Zealand's most celebrated writers. She has published six novels and seven short story collections, as well as a number of books for children and non-fiction. She won the New Zealand Fiction Award for Potiki in 1987, and was longlisted for the Booker Prize in 2001 with Dogside Story, which also won the Kiriyama Pacific Rim Fiction Prize. Her children's story The Kuia and the Spider won Children's Picture Book of the Year. Name in the first page.

New Zealand New Zealand Council for Educational Research 1989 0908567804 / 9780908567805 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
139 pages. New Zealand Council for Educational Research studies in education. At this time of rapid educational change, relationships between parents and teachers in early childhood education are more important than ever before. Keeping in Touch focuses on kindergartens, but what it has to say is relevant to all forms of pre-school education. Margery Renwick discusses the various contacts between teachers and parents - through teacher visits to a child's home, introductory group pre-entry sessions at kindergartens, parents helping at kindergartens - and looks at the support parents receive from teachers, and how they feel (often expressed in their own words) about the teachers’ role in their own and their children's lives. This thoroughly researched, accessible and sympathetic study will increase our understanding of the vital relationship between parents and teachers in kindergartens.
