More Than Water: The Story of lake Hood shows how an ambitious dream became reality. It is an inspirational account of the 15-year journey taken by a community determined to build a lake in the arid plains of mid-Canterbury. More Than Water is more than an account of how a world-class recreational facilty was created out of brush-covered farmland. it is a story of how, through hard work, positive thinking and sheer determination, ordinary New Zealanders can triumph. At no point did this group think, 'Can we do this?', but rather, 'How can we do this?' Their vision and persistence, their determination to turn set-backs into success, show us that we can all achieve our goals if our belief in them is strong enough.
