THIS TITLE IS NOW OUT OF PRINT. A NEW COLLECTION WILL BE AVAILABLE IN OCTOBER 2017 CALLED KAHURANGI STORIES
Kahurangi National Park gathers in a huge area of wilderness in the northwest corner of the South Island, stretching west from Nelson in a maze of forested mountains and valleys to the rugged and wild West Coast, and from Golden Bay south to Karamea. An area of astonishing ecological complexity, this landscape has generated a wonderfully rich and colourful human history.
Golden Bay author Gerard Hindmarsh has been collecting stories from Kahurangi for well over 20 years, and this book weaves the best of them into a compelling blend of natural and social history. Kahurangi Calling describes many of the geological, botanical and ecological treasures that are found in Kahurangi and tells the stories of the fascinating characters who have travelled and lived here: explorers, miners, graziers, eelers, hermits, trampers and other adventurers.
Kahurangi Calling is a highly readable and engaging book about a remarkable corner of New Zealand, written by a local with a love of the area and a nose for a good story.
