New books about Tramping in New ZealandOne of my passions are books about tramping, climbing and the outdoors, particularly books about these pursuits in a New Zealand context. I have a growing collection of classic tramping titles as well as guides, personal histories and biographies in my own library. Here are a couple of excellent books I received for Christmas, both with a tramping theme.
Shelter from the Storm: Shelter from the Storm: The Story of New Zealand's Backcountry Huts
Tramping: A New Zealand StoryBy Shaun Barnett & Chris Maclean
Taken together these two books give an excellent introduction to the history of tramping and back country huts in this country, I thoroughly recommend both.
