Stewart Island, or Rakiura, is one of New Zealand's special places - an island whose remote atmosphere and character is cherished by many people worldwide. In 2002 most of the Island was gazetted as New Zealand's fourteenth national park and Rakiura - The wilderness of Stewart Island celebrates all of its remarkable beauty with a stunning collection of photography by Rob Brown. This book features over 80 large format photographs of Stewart Island's extraordinary and distinctive landscape. These range from the windswept granite peaks and outcrops around the southern harbour of Port Pegasus, the huge sweep of sand dunes behind Mason bay, the cliffs and islands around its rugged, weather-beaten coastline, and the primeval podocarp forest and windswept manuka, and the abundant widelife including species such as great spotted kiwi and kapako.
