A New Zealand publishing gem, The Iron-Bound Coast was destined to disappear without a trace until, following a chance meeting shortly before his death, Wally Badham entrusted it to Bob Harvey.
Now readers can discover the rare yarn-telling talents of Badham, who died in 2001, together with stunning photos that conjure up the Karekare coast in a time when the world was young.
Beautifully printed in a hardback edition of 200 pages, with 215 rarely seen photos, this book is a must for anyone who loves Karekare.

The Iron-Bound Coast is a rare book discovered by Waitakere City Mayor Bob Harvey while researching Auckland’s spectacular west coast. Wally Badham set out to preserve his crystal-clear memories of early Karekare for his nieces, but has created a work of living history that speaks to all New Zealanders. Bob recalls his excitement on discovering The Iron-Bound Coast:
I realised this is truly a rich gem, a legacy of not only remote Karekare beach, but a grand story of this country. Wally speaks in a voice that reflects the time; a time that is now rapidly fading in memory and people.

The Karekare Surf Lifesaving Club warmly invites you to a book night in the Club on Sunday the 25th of October at 7.00pm. Cash bar & book sales.

Ted Scott on his book Spirit of the West
