Much of New Zealand remains untamed. Twenty mountain peaks soar to heights greater than 3000m. Volcanoes, boiling mud pools, golden beaches and towering cliffs are all features of the landform. Rainforests, primeval forests, alpine slopes and near-deserts contain diverse vegetation.
The book explains how New Zealand came to occupy its isolated position on the globe, describes the landscapes of 24 regions and offers practical guidance on visiting them and walking in the wilderness.
This is a second hand book.
