"Fantastic book. Used it for a 5 day tramp and we were the envy of everyone in the huts!"

I am a keen and experienced tramper with a great passion for the New Zealand outdoor wilderness. I have over 40 years of tramping and outdoor cooking experience, and I am always keen to share this knowledge with others.

I wrote my first outdoor cook book "Fast and Light" in 2012, featuring light weight food ideas for multi day trampers and this has been such a success that it was revised in 2014 and has been reprinted many times.

From late August 2011 until February 2012, l was walking the Te Araroa trail, that runs 3,000 km down the length of New Zealand and includes many of our most beautiful wilderness areas. The highlights of this 152 day journey are included in my new book - End to End New Zealand which is now available from this website.

Then along with my daughter Rebecca we wrote a new multi-purpose outdoor cookbook "New Zealand Backcountry Cooking" featuring over 260 recipes and food ideas for outdoor enthusiasts. We believe this comprehensive cooking guide is unlike anything ever published in New Zealand before and we are sure you will enjoy reading and using this book.
