Te Ara – The Encyclopedia of New Zealand offers many pathways to understanding New Zealand. When complete, it will be a comprehensive guide to the country’s peoples, natural environment, history, culture, economy, institutions and society. Te Ara consists of 9 themes, appearing progressively between 2005 and 2012; New Zealanders – describes the arrival and settlement of the people, Earth, Sea and Sky – explores the marine life, people and the sea, natural resources, and shaping forces such as geology and climate. The Bush – covers New Zealand’s landforms, fauna and flora. The Settled Landscape – looks at how people live in, use and change their environment. Trade and Exchange – examines the economy, business and city life. Connections – details social groups, families and communities. Nation – focuses on systems of government and symbols of national identity. Daily Life – tells of the intricacies of the customs, leisure activities and beliefs that make New Zealand unique. Creativity – views the beauty of the arts, culture, invention and innovation. The New Zealand in Brief gives concise, up-to-date information and essential facts about New Zealand.

Eric and his girlfriend are leaving for NZ in three days and I am happy for them, but still longing to go, myself. Well, at least I'll have a "point-man" living there if and when my turn comes. And I've spent an ungodly amount of time doing NZ research and looking at real estate (so I can sell all my worldy posessions to buy land there and live simply.)

Thanks for adding quality to my list of resources.
