New Zealand on the move: 100 Kiwi road, rail and transport icons
Random House, Auckland 2011
New Zealanders have always been a people on the move. Ever since the earliest colonial age, Kiwis have got about the country in vehicles of all kinds – from horse-drawn wagons to smoke-belching locomotives, classic aircraft – and a fabulous procession of much-loved motorcars.
In this lively survey of a hundred of our best-loved, iconic or just plain quirky trains, planes, trucks, cars and motorcycles, Matthew Wright re-aquaints us with some of the ways we used to get around.
New Zealand on the Move follows the winning formula of Wright's best-selling book Big Ideas: 100 Wonders of New Zealand Engineering.
