"[Adventure Divas] is not just about travel, although it’s as adventurous as can be. More than that, it’s Morris’ account of leaving her deskbound publishing job and joining her broadcaster mother to form Adventure Divas to track down “unsung visionaries,” women who changed the world in Cuba, India, New, Zealand, and Iran… Morris’ interviews… are thoughtful and probing, revealing the differences between their lives and those of American women. Her text adds context — and humor — to the project, warts and all… A good bet for feminists, fans of the PBS shows, adventure travelers, and anyone who wants a good read." — Booklist
Diva Tour leader Ingrid Emerick’s latest collection of essays recounts the thrills of traveling alone. The twenty-three essays — including one by Adventure Divas founder Holly Morris — pay tribute to the empowerment of independent adventure and discovery.
Just what you’d expect. A selection of the best contemporary Maori Fiction
A collection of stories from the body of New Zealand writing that began with the work of Katherine Mansfield. It includes recent work by Vincent O’Sullivan, Owen Marshall and Keri Hulme and stories by newer writers such as Barbara Anderson, John Cranna and Emily Perkins, alongside well-known stories by Joy Cowley, C. K. Stead and James Courage.
This volume examines the film from a variety of critical perspectives. In six essays an international team of scholars examine topics such as the controversial representation of the Maori, the use of music in the film, the portrayal of the mother-daughter relationship, and the significance of the film in terms of international cinema, the culture of New Zealand and the work of Jane Campion.
