"This illustrated history of Milford Sound, the Milford Track and the Milford Road contains an outstanding collection of over 300 early photographs, paintings and maps, the great majority of which have never been published before. The book includes the earliest accounts of the first Europeans to visit Milford Sound, the sealers, the Acheron surveyors and the geologists Sir James Hector and Robert Paulin. New light is shed on the explorations of Donald Sutherland, the hermit of Milford Sound, and whether or not he climbed the Mackinnon Pass before Quintin Mackinnon. Here too, are the deeds of brave William Quill who climbed the Sutherland Falls three times; Jim Dennistoun who made the first ascent of Mitre Peak in a pair of gym shoes! And surveyor John Christie who descended the awful cliffs of the Homer Saddle on a wire rope."
