This beautiful book by geologist Bruce W. Hayward guides readers through 100 natural wonders of Aotearoa New Zealand, exploring 500 million years of natural history. This book features some of New Zealand's most iconic natural wonders, from Whakaari/ White Island, to Huka Falls, to the Moeraki Boulders, and Milford Sound.

A guided tour through 500 million years of history – and a spectacular introduction to the natural wonders of Aotearoa New Zealand. From Whakaari/ White Island and Huka Falls to the Moeraki Boulders and Milford Sound, Aotearoa New Zealand overflows with extraordinary landforms and other natural features. This is not a random quirk of nature, but a result of the unique and complex geological history of this part of planet Earth.

In this beautiful book, geologist Bruce W. Hayward guides readers through 100 natural wonders of Aotearoa – introducing the geology and history with words, explanatory diagrams and remarkable aerial photography by Alastair Jamieson and Lloyd Homer. Through these 100 special places, we begin to understand the shape of Aotearoa and the 500-million-year history of our small, mostly submerged continent of Zealandia.

For every car and coffee table, Mountains, Volcanoes, Coasts and Caves is the essential guide to the deep story of this country – how it was formed and how it has changed over millennia.
