Volcanoes of Auckland is a handy field guide to the fiery natural world that so deeply shapes New Zealand’s largest city – from Rangitoto to One Tree Hill, Lake Pupuke to Ōrākei Basin. For tens of thousands of years, volcanoes have profoundly shaped the area’s geology and geography. And for hundreds of years, volcanoes have played a key part in the lives of Māori and Pākehā – as sites for pā, kūmara gardens or twentieth-century military fortifications, as sources of stone and water, and now as parks and reserves for all to enjoy. This field guide will help readers engage afresh with the history, geography and geology of Auckland’s unique volcanic landscape.
