Surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown is New Zealand's premier four-season lake and alpine resort. Here, in the second book of the 'Stories Behind the Scenery' series, Mike Holman's stunning photographs highlight the unique beauty of Queenstown. Sue Hall's text gives the reader the 'stories': the fascinating geology, the mythology, the people of the region from the earliest inhabitants, and the many sports and activities on offer in this unique playground. A gorgeous souvenir of a magical destination.
