Tales of the Taylor is a book of poetry and photography celebrating Blenheim's Taylor River.
The book includes an introduction that covers some historical and geographical information about the river before following the river from its source to its confluence with the Ōpaoa River in Blenheim, in a series of photographs with accompanying poems. The poems are in a variety of styles with references to local history, classic literature, contemporary culture and more, often with irreverent humour.
A contribution from each book sale will go towards purchasing native plants to enhance the Taylor River.
Both paperback and hardback editions are available.
The paperback edition is within the 200g weight limit for international document postage rates when posted from New Zealand, so is affordable to send internationally.
