4.0 out of 5 stars Easy tramping in New Zealand April 3 2000
Format:Paperback
This is a great book for planning a tramping trip to New Zealand, although it's a bit too much to carry while actually hiking. The book contains good references and maps to the most popular tracks, and some of the lesser known tracks. If your tight on cash, I recommend going to the visitor centers in New Zealand and picking up the DOC pamphlets they supply. D.O.C. has detailed pamphlets on pretty much every track in New Zealand and they only charge about 50 cents (US) for each one. But if you want to plan a trip from home, this is the book to get, it's far easier to understand than the other New Zealand tramping books, and gives good information on what you need to bring. It also gives good info on the New Zealand back country hut system. Buy a hut pass, they're only 35 bucks (US) for a year. It even supplies some decent fly fishing tips for the rivers that border some of the tracks. But be warned that almost every other tourist hiker in New Zealand also has this book, so if you really want to get away from people, you'll have to do some bushwacking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for the planning Tramper April 8 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This edition is far better than the previous editions. It's new organization and additional information sections are a marked improvement. A new section on Flora and Fauna gives a highlight of any New Zealand tramp. This book acts as an excellent reference book while tramping. Of course, if the book contained every piece of required information, (i.e. highly detailed maps and every step of the way instructions) it would require 1000's of pages. The authors surmount that difficulty by including instructions on how to obtain additional necessary information. The book is perfect for those that are looking into or planning a backpacking trek to New Zealand.

Format:Paperback
By far the best guide available about tramping opportunities in NZ. The track guides are pretty accurate and provide a good overview of what to expect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Served us well. Feb. 5 2013
By Joel D Templin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A friend and I used this book when planning a backpacking trip from the U.S. Unfortunately, we only had enough time in NZ to sample one of the hikes detailed in this book. The 60 mile hike we chose was very accurately described and we found the info in the book to be useful in helping us make a decision about where to go in the first place. Well worth the purchase.
