              Moir's Guide North: The Otago Southern Alps : from the Hollyford to Lake Ohau
               

              Moir's Guide North: The Otago Southern Alps : from the Hollyford to Lake Ohau (Paperback, 8th edition)

              By Hegg, Danilo; Spearpoint, Geoff

              This comprehensive tramping and transalpine route guide covers the Otago Southern Alps (Routeburn, Earnslaw and Aspiring), South Westland (the Hollyford north to the Karangarua), Haast Pass and the Ohau/Hawea valleys. Moir's offers a source of inspiration for trips throughout the... region, with detailed route notes to assist trampers, hunters, and mountaineers. Although all the popular routes are described, Moir's greatest strength remains it's thorough coverage of the less-visited backcountry in the region. This is a tramping guide to the valleys and passes; climbing in the Aspiring area is covered in The Mount Aspiring Region guidebook, while climbing opportunities north of Haast Pass are covered by the Barron - Brewster Guide (see Mountaineering Guides).

              Shelter from the Storm: The Story of New Zealand's Backcountry Huts (Hardback)

              One of the defining and unique features of the New Zealand outdoors is the backcountry hut. New Zealand has a remarkably diverse network of these huts, unparalleled anywhere else in the world, and for those who venture into our wild places there is often a passionate attachment t...o these humble structures. Shelter from the Storm is a landmark publication, the first wide-ranging history of our hut network. The authors provide an overview of who built the huts - tramping and mountaineering clubs, the Department of Internal Affairs, Lands and Survey, New Zealand Forest Service, Park Boards and DOC - as well as why they were built, which includes farming, mining, tourism, tramping and climbing, hunting and deer culling, science and as monuments. For each of these sections the authors profile a wide range of representative huts, and recount the fascinating stories that invariably surround them. This is a wonderful book, meticulously researched and lavishly illustrated with a huge range of historic and contemporary photographs. Its significance and appeal is far-reaching, as this is a subject that has a genuine resonance with many, many New Zealanders.

              "New Zealand has a huge range of backcountry huts, most of which are available for public use. Some can sleep 80 people, while others are tiny two-bunk affairs with not even room to stand up in. They are located in our mountains, on the edges of fiords, our coastlines and lakes, ...beside rivers, in the bush and on the open tops. Together they form an internationally unique network of backcountry shelter, and these huts, so often full of character and history, are fantastic destinations in their own right"--Back cover.
