- Central North Island and Lake Taupō environments, their history and people.

Val Raymond lived to sketch, draw and paint. The latter section of this publication, 'The Artist's Journey', provides an insight into how her early artistic talent evolved to create her highly acclaimed 'abstract expressions'.
