Much has changed in Burma since Birgit Neiser first visited in 1981. The country is now known as Myanmar, and military rule – which lasted nearly half a century – has given way to a tentative democratic process. Returning in 2010, at the cusp of this groundbreaking shift, Neiser began spending two months each year in Myanmar. To document ways of life she knew would soon start to disappear and to reach areas inaccessible to the casual visitor, the author travelled across the country – on the back of timber trucks in the mountains of Kachin state, by motorbike in northern Shan State, and onboard an old fishing vessel in the Andaman Sea. The result is Catching the Light – a dazzling collection of photographs that captures a unique moment in Myanmar’s social, cultural, and political history.

A fascinating insight into the story behind New Zealand's internationally renowned tourist jet boat venture which launched Queenstown's adventure tourism industry in 1965 and has thrilled over three million passengers in its first half century of operation. Jet boating arrived in New Zealand in the 1950s with the invention of the Hamilton jet unit by pioneer CWF (Bill) Hamilton. Tourism pioneers quickly identified the potential in Queenstown for commercial jet boating and in 1965 the Shotover Jet Boat Service Ltd was launched. During the following 50 years the trip through narrow and challenging Shotover Canyons has developed into a flagship New Zealand tourist activity - billed as the "world's most exciting jet boat ride". Shotover Jet has attracted many celebrities and received the royal stamp of approval and worldwide exposure when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge rode the canyons during their 2014 New Zealand tour. This book is more than just a story about a high profile tourist jet boat company - it is a captivating history reflecting the indomitable New Zealand pioneering spirit and early risk taking tourism entrepreneurs. Accompanied by superb historic and contemporary photographs Shotover Jet - The Story Of Queenstown's Adventure Tourism Pioneer captures one of the most exciting times in New Zealand's tourism history. www.shotoverjet.com

From dog sledding to ice fishing to waterfall climbing to bandy, countless possibilities await beyond the crowded ski slope and traditional winter activities. Create the winter wonderland that you desire and crave. Colder temperatures invite a variety of unique ways to interact with nature. Dog sleighs and snowshoes facilitate movement across snowy plains for everyday icy life whilst ice motocross and figure skating provide a burst of adrenaline. Whether you are looking for a vacation spot where the sun shimmers off of a glittering frozen cliff or for an athletic alternative to the conventional ski slopes, Below Zero celebrates the search for cabins instead of offices and parkas instead of suit jackets. Through images of landscapes dusted in a powdery palette and depictions of cold weather athletics, any questions of what to do with a snow day are answered in Below Zero. This volume explores the brisk side of nature's beauty and the adventures that await when the mercury drops.
