Why the Hibiscus?

I've just received, from the Silverdale & Districts Historical Society, a wonderful brand new book called Why the Hibiscus?, subtitled Place Names of the Hibiscus Coast by Robin Grover of that society. In 64 pages, A5-size, it manages to convey an excellent overview of the general area, as well as specific information on: Silverdale, Whangaparaoa, Orewa, Hatfields Beach, Waiwera, Wainui, Dairy Flat, Stillwater and Tiritiri-Matangi.

Even though I already have way too many books, this one is a must have in my opinion.
