Westland Foothills & Forests:
Subject: Travel, Sport/Leisure
The towering mountains, ancient glaciers, primeval forests and wild beaches of Westland are legendary, and exploring the region is an adventure in stark contrasts. It offers the climber, tramper or explorer a wide range of experiences, from alpine routes for the serious climber to gentle tracks suitable for the whole family – some through places of historical interest and all through areas of great natural beauty.
In this book Pat Barrett, author of Canterbury Foothills and Forests, brings together his extensive tramping and climbing experience and his skills as a superb photographer to provide a guide to all the marked walking tracks, huts and recognised tramping routes of the region, many of which have never before been documented in this form.
The magnificent scenery of Westland is not simply to be admired: this book will help you experience it first hand for yourself.
