              "Planes were rarely seen above the small Central Otago sheep-farming town of Ranfurly in the 1940s. Yet as a young boy, Tom Enright had a fascination with the skies that quickly developed into a longing to become a pilot. He joined the RNZAF as an engineer in 1951, and was sent t...o England at just 16 to attend the revered Royal Air Force college in Cranwell. Returning to New Zealand to join the Vampire fighter squadron in Ohakea, Tom became a famed member of the RNZAF aerobatic team. Later he became a flying commander at Wigram air base, before captaining a Sunderland flying boat to isolated communities in the vast South Pacific, often to the upper limits of the plane's endurance. From the near-catastrophic opening of Wellington airport to flying Boeing 747s into the world's biggest airports, this is Tom Enright's story of the mishaps, misadventures and high-altitude drama of a 45-year flying career"--Back cover.

              "A colourful account of the men and women, past and present, who have committed their lives to shearing in New Zealand. Their voices - in their own words, often brutally honest reflections on what it is to be a shearer - are at the heart of this book: their training, their tools,... their camaraderie, and the gruelling, itinerant nature of the job. Old hands like Brian Snow Quinn, Tony Dobbs and Peter Casserly, and Peter and Elsie Lyon, as well as those newer to the scene, offer personal insights, often for the first time"--Publisher information.

              "The abduction and murder of teenager Jane Furlong is one of New Zealands most enduring mysteries. Jane was 17 when she disappeared from Aucklands Karangahape Road in 1993. She was a girlfriend, a daughter, a sex worker, and the mother of a four-and-a-half-month-old baby. Her dis...appearance made sensational headlines across the country, particularly when it was linked to the sex crimes of a wealthy businessman, and it became known that Jane had been about to appear as a witness at his and another court case. Although the police identified a number of suspects, no one has ever been charged over Janes disappearance. Her body was found in 2012, 20 years later, in sand dunes at Sunset Beach in Port Waikato. The case gained fresh momentum - but still no arrests. Court reporter Kelly Dennett became interested after noticing Jane Furlongs mother, Judith Furlong, sitting alone in a courtroom during a murder trial. Over time she won Judiths confidence and learned intimate details of Janes life. She also gained unique access to Janes boyfriend conducting the first media interviews he has ever granted - and her close friends. Police officers talked candidly about the case and she carried out detailed research into the suspects, focusing on one man in particular, and eliminating others." -- Provided by publisher.
