“If you think you know someone who would like this book, you are probably right.”

A NZ parallel to French writer Jean Giono’s famous story ‘The Man Who Planted Trees’.

For readers who identify with nature conservation in New Zealand, many of the stories in this book will evoke a sympathetic appeal and common understanding.

‘Elisabeth’s Story’ explains a pioneering New Zealand woman’s personal, life-long contribution to Kiwi conservation after the manner of the French Planteur d’arbre of Jean Giono’s famous short story ‘The Man Who Planted Trees’.

‘For The Love of Birds’ sets an enchanting theme where personal stories are interspersed by appeals for intelligent reasoning when interpreting nature events.

In a surprise fictional contribution, guest writer Jean-Paul du Pries suggests in ‘Chilling Predictions’ that in our tragically fractured world, sadly, perhaps not all is as secure for New Zealanders and New Zealand wildlife as we might wish.
