By Wayne Thompson and Ross White
Taking the reader on a fascinating tour from Cape Reinga to Cook Strait, this book is an affectionate tribute to those neglected places, pausing along the way to meet the custodians of the back country and to learn about their struggles and achievements.
With an absorbing text including a wealth of useful information - from evocative glimpses of tumble-down farmhouses to the stunning panoramas - Back Country Byways is a delightful read that will appeal to motorists, trampers, tourists and armchair explorers alike.
