A look at some of New Zealand's historic houses - in words and in pictures. An eclectic mix, these houses, generally from the 19th century, and ranging from one-roomed cobs to country mansions, have been chosen because of their significance: they are 'a first', have been built by an architect of significance, have been lived in by notable New Zealanders. Most are open to visitors and they all have charm. A novelist, the author is interested in the houses' stories and has personally visited them all. The 60 houses are organised regionally: Northland/Auckland, Waikato/Bay of Plenty, Taranaki/Wanganui/Rangitikei, Gisborne/Hawkes Bay/Wairarapa, Wellington, Nelson/Marlborough, Canterbury and Otago. Linda is interested in the houses' stories and each piece is lively and accessible, giving fascinating background history. Robert Burgess, partner of the author and ex-All Black, has photographed the houses inside and out and created a great portfolio of images.
