9781411656444: New Zealand with a Hobbit Botherer

What should you do if your spouse becomes addicted to the Lord of the Rings movies and swoons at the very mention of Orlando Bloom's name? (Thud. Quick, fetch the smelling salts.)

How about taking the advice of a strange apparition that reveals itself in a dream? An apparition that looks remarkably like the director of the movies, Peter Jackson, but not quite remarkably enough to prompt legal action. An apparition that recommends touring New Zealand in an effort to prove that its sheep pastures aren't really filled by frolicking Hobbits. Just sheep and the occasional zorbing local.

This is the hilarious tale of such a tour, featuring snow capped mountains and turquoise lakes, flightless birds and flying cattle, bungy jumping grannies and the carrot mafia, strange yellow eyes peering up from a road map and hotel receptionists always desperate to know win you are living.

From the Publisher:

Praise for the book:

"I laughed so hard I could barely breathe!" - Tami Brady, TCM Reviews.

"You'll also learn a lot about a colorful land and its rich history, because in between nuggets of humor John Gisby provides plenty of solid facts about New Zealand. He's not only an entertaining writer, but an informative one, too." - Nina M. Osier, author of Rough Rider.

"Whether you are a Tolkien fan or not, you will love this romp through Kiwi-land in search of Hobbit lore. Like it’s inspiration, Hobbit Botherer has a colorful cast of characters, the entire land of New Zealand for its backdrop, poetic language (or at least great puns) fast moving adventure and, something Lord of the Rings did not have, a genuine Hobbit Botherer." - Kathleen Walls, author of Kudzu, Last Step, Finding Florida's Phantoms and editor of travel magazine, American Roads.
