Description

In 'Untamed Coast', Bob Harvey not only describes the natural beauty of the Waitakeres, but also outlines the ancient Maori history, the more recent pioneering past, and profiles some of the area's main characters - adding many fascinating anecdotes and stories not found elsewhere. He also includes detailed guides (with maps) to many of the recreational walks in the ranges, and a special feature of this new edition is a separate section on the newly opened Hillary Trail. Ted Scott's splendid photographs add richness to the book, making this one of the finest local tourist books ever published in New Zealand.
