By  Bruce Ansley, Jane Ussher

A journey to New Zealand's most fascinating, wild and isolated islands.

A journey to New Zealand's most fascinating, wild and isolated islands.

Following on from their non-fiction book-of-the-year winning Coast, this is the next epic journey from writer Bruce Ansley and photographer Jane Ussher.

New Zealand is surrounded by hundreds of islands, mainly remnants of a larger land mass now beneath the sea. Some are idyllic retreats; others have poignant histories of castaways, prisons and leper colonies. Some have become sanctuaries, safe from destructive predators; some are farmed by fifth and sixth generations of the same family; others are isolated outposts, barely sustaining life at all; while some are hidden where you’d least expect...
