2015. I’m in New Zealand, working on my second book Eight Passes. It’s about New Zealand’s Southern Alps, told through eight walking journeys over the high mountain passes used in pre-European times. Part adventure-story, part idiosyncratic bicultural history, I’m trying to bring to life some of the stories, beauty, and fiercely contested significance of these spectucular landscapes. Here’s a few photos from journeys thus far.
