Rod and Rosamunde Read's journey is a story of love and devotion. It is also a story of strong emotions - anger, frustration, distress, joy, acceptance and learning. As well as being a very personal story, it is an important and valuable guide for care givers - doctors, nurses, rest home workers - who have the challenging and critical task of helping patients through their journey with Alzheimers and other forms of dementia. Forget Me Not gives wonderful insights into the many aspects of the progressive decline from good health to a very different world and the inevitable consequences for those who care and love the patient.

Helping Hands is, for the first time, a history of health care in a New Zealand region from pre-European days to today. While the story of health challenges and responses to them deals specifically with the Wairarapa, the events, experiences and flavour of changes to medical practices and patient needs will have been very similar throughout the rest of the country. There are chapters on early Maori health, the very limited health care of the early European period, the first doctors, nurses and hospitals. The towns in the region – Featherston, Martinborough, Greytown, Carterton, Masterton and Eketahuna – have developed their health services, moulded by circumstances and personalities, in distinctive ways. Helping Hands covers the health of the region through epidemics and new medical discoveries, depression and world wars and describes the tensions between national requirements or political agendas and local needs. It also outlines the often bewildering and acronym-filled health bureaucracy of today and the decades of political tinkering that has led to present structures and the ‘contracting’ out of many services . Helping Hands is an important social history focussing on the life and death issues that are central to the functioning and progress of communities. Hundreds of photographs complement the text.

These angling stories will whet your appetite to be out on the river again. From one end of New Zealand to the other, these short chapters introduce the reader to some of our country’s fabulous wild waters and the cunning brown and rainbow trout lurking in them. With beautiful photographs of New Zealand’s back country rivers this could almost be a travel book as much as a set of fishing yarns. As author Tony and his wife wander from one river to another you will be introduced to the wild, untamed beauty of our nation. You will experience Tony’s love of nature and the tranquillity of the back country rivers as much as the thrill of landing some of those big trout. Written by the author of The Black Singlet Brigade and Boots ’n’ All, Wimps in Waders is a book for any-one who enjoys a lazy afternoon on a riverbank as much as the adrenaline rush brought on by the hunt for that worthy adversary, New Zealand’s well-schooled trout. Experiences gained in 50 years of fishing make for an enthralling read as Tony grows from a tentative spin fisherman to a fully-fledged angler. A chance encounter with another river bed angler led to Tony’s introduction to the local fishing club and as he confesses his membership led to growth in his skills. This can be noted from the explanations of fishing techniques and fly tying guidelines found throughout the book. These short stories explore some of our relatively unknown streams and are beautifully illustrated with full colour photographs.
