A gritty story of commitment, self-discovery and the outer limits of human endurance. Hamish Bond and Eric Murray's domination of world rowing is legendary. Double Olympic champions, world record holders and the winners of six World Championship titles in the coxless pair, they have been at the pinnacle of their sport since they captured their first title together in 2009. The Kiwi Pair shares the story of Bond and Murray's unique partnership. Some would describe them as chalk and cheese, two contrasting personalities who nevertheless bring out the best in each other. Join them as they share the secrets to their success, their extreme training regime, the highs and lows of top level sport, and the extraordinary dedication it takes to be world-beating oarsmen. 'This is a story of dedication, and that is a story that is not told often enough.' - Sir Steve Redgrave

Cycling Legends is a series of books detailing New Zealand's ten greatest cyclists. The first in the series tells the story of Phil O'Shea, the greatest of them all. Born in 1889, O'Shea's quiet, unassuming persona was juxtaposed by an extraordinary athletic ability. He won every track and road cycling title he set his mind to, during a time when competitive cycling was one of the world's most popular sports. He went to Australia and won their road championships three years straight. After 1923, he concentrated on track racing. Champions from around the world were imported for O'Shea to compete against in front of home crowds. After a long racing career he coached other champions, ran a cycle shop in Christchurch, and continued cycling until he was 90.

"Few bird species are more ancient than the kiwi. Its lineage predates the end of the Cretaceous period 65 million years ago. This landmark book on New Zealand's national bird looks at its fascinating nature, where it can be seen, the history of its interaction with people, its emblem status and the widespread efforts underway to help it survive another millennium." "Neville Peat has a story to tell of the iconic kiwi. It is the story of the largest conservation effort yet seen in New Zealand in support of a single species, involving thousands of volunteers, scores of sponsors and millions of dollars."--BOOK JACKET.
