Volcanoes of Auckland will help readers engage afresh with the history, geography and geology of Auckland's unique volcanic landscape.
From Rangitoto to One Tree Hill, Mt Victoria to Mangere Lagoon, the city of Auckland is defined by the volcanoes it is built upon. For tens of thousands of years, volcanoes have profoundly shaped the area's geology and geography. And for hundreds of years, volcanoes have played a key part in the lives of Maori and Pakeha – as sites for pa, kumara gardens or twentieth-century military fortifications, as sources of stone and water, and now as parks and reserves for all to enjoy.
Volcanoes of Auckland is a fully illustrated account of these extraordinary natural phenomena – the essential guide for locals and tourists, schoolchildren and scientists, as they climb up Mt Eden or North Head and look around, trying to understand the volcanoes that so shape life in our city.
