Todays NZ book

Tararua, the story of a mountain range by Chris Maclean.

Of particular interest to those who have tramped and hunted in these hill and to those who live in their shadow.

Full of photographs and illustrations old and new, the history of this range is told- exploration, adventure, trailblazing and hut-building.

I love the tales of how REAL men and women dressed in wool and oilskin cut the tracks and built the hut in the spirit of our pioneer past before these days of the DOC nancy's choppering up prefabricated motel units!!
