New Zealanders have endured jokes about sheep for as long as they remember. It goes with the territory in a country where sheep once outnumbered people by more than 20 to 1. But just as New Zealand's image as a country overrun by woolly beasts is no longer valid, such is the case for many other facets of Kiwi life. Is New Zealand still the land of milk and honey, where men worship the gods of rugby, racing and beer and the women know how to whip up a pavlova for dessert? Author Justin Brown set out on a mission to find out what's happened to modern New Zealand. Having turned 36, and discovered by chance that's the age of the 'average' New Zealander, Brown figured it was time he rediscovered the country he'd grown up in. Brown's findings reveal a side to the nation you might not have expected. His light-hearted approach will make you smile as he turns up some surprises - and the odd sheep joke.
