The Great Unknown wins

Geoff Spearpoint’s lauded book, that we published last year, The Great Unknown: Mountain Journeys in the Southern Alps is the inaugural winner of the New Zealand Mountain Book of the Year Award, part of the NZ Mountain Film & Book Festival, held annually in Wanaka. We are thrilled for Geoff, for his book has made a significant contribution to New Zealand’s outdoor literature. He is one of our most experienced exponents of transalpine tramping and mountaineering; The Great Unknown chronicles a lifetime of mountain adventures. Breathtaking in its scope, beautifully written and illustrated with wonderful photography, this book has immediately become a favourite with all those who have a love of tramping or adventure. We’re clearly biased, but he is a very deserving winner!
