One of New Zealand's great photographers, Arno Gasteiger, presents his favourite landscape images of Canterbury. The spectacular region of Canterbury, from braided rivers and distinctive plains, to the dramatic Mackenzie Basin as it sweeps up to the Southern Alps, is captured in this new book. The region is crowded with great landscapes, delightful small towns and favourite tourists spots such as Arthurs Pass, Banks Peninsula, Lake Tekapo, Gore Bay, Lyttelton. The historic buildings of Christchurch also feature. The introductory text about the history of the area is provided by Philip Temple, who lived in Banks Peninsula for 17 years.
