There are just days left to snap up a stunning new book about Whanganui at a discount price. And if you do so, you could also be dining out for free.

The book - From the Sea to the Mountain - offers a wonderful insight into the region's many attractions. The 224-page, full colour, hard back coffee table book is beautifully designed and features stunning photos from a range of local photographers who have captured Whanganui's natural charms, its heritage buildings and many activities. A number of well-known local writers and journalists have contributed articles, and the book makes a perfect Christmas present and is likely to become a treasured keepsake in many households.

The book will be published in November and on sale at $24.95, but Chronicle readers can pre-order until Sunday, September 30, and receive a 20 per cent discount, paying just $19.95 by using our special online code.

In addition to the discount, publisher Henry Newrick is offering readers the opportunity to go into a draw to win one of three dining out vouchers courtesy of Caroline's Boatshed and the Grand Hotel.


First prize is a $50 dining voucher at Caroline's and there are two runner-up prizes worth $30 each, being dining vouchers at the Grand Hotel.

Readers will receive one entry in the draw for each book ordered. Those who order four books get four entries to the draw and also receive an extra book free. $1.25 from every copy pre-ordered will go to a local charity.
