            South Away: The Pacific Coast on Two Wheels
             

            South Away: The Pacific Coast on Two Wheels (Paperback)

            • RRP: $40.99
            • $40.99
            • In Stock US

            South Away is an adventure story of the authors bicycle trip with her sister from Terrace, BC along the West coast to (almost) the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Meaghan Marie Hackinen experiences apprehension and determination as she camps in the dense forests of northern Vancouver ...Island and in frigid Mexican deserts; encounters strange men, suicidal highways and monster trucks; strong winds and violent storms; flat ties and broken spokes. Her couch-surfacing adventures provide an insight into the kindness of strangers en route. Accompanying the travel memoir is an inner journey, related through flashbacks and memories, as the author begins to better understand her relationship with her parents, grandmother, and sister. In attempting to balance risk with safety, she arrives at a minimalist philosophy of living, which requires physical stamina and mental ingenuity. The style is engaging and personable; the images of landscape and seascape are imaginative and memorable. South Away is a rare roadtrip storywith a female lead and a female companion, a Canadian Hobbit tale of adventure and miraculous events.

            By Hutchinson, Garrie

            There are more than 30,000 New Zealand men and women, casualties of the two world wars, buried in cemeteries and named on memorials around the world. From Gallipoli to the Western Front, Palestine and the Middle East, Greece, Crete, Italy, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, New Zealan...ders have fought and died for their country. On a journey through time and place, Garrie Hutchinson takes you to these foreign battlefields, revealing their past and present. With GPS co-ordinates, written descriptions, maps and handy hints, and illustrated with exquisite photography throughout, Pilgrimage is a practical and up-to-date travel companion intertwined with a rich and elegantly told history. For those interested in visiting the battlefields and cemeteries in person, and others wanting to simply read about the story of New Zealanders in the two World Wars, Pilgrimage is a timely and touching reminder of the impact New Zealand soldiers made in the global arena of war, and their legacy that lasts today.
