Sinopsis: An extended stay in New Zealand determined the content of Gillian Orrell?s first book. New Boots in New Zealand is a humorous, first-hand account of walking the nine Great Walks of New Zealand, encompassing many additional facts, anecdotes and insights about New Zealand?s culture, history and peoples. Deciding to go solo, Gillian accomplished all nine walks in the space of a few months, not only learning all she needed to know about tramping but also a huge amount about New Zealand. This superbly written and hugely enjoyable book is the result of her efforts. It describes what tramping in New Zealand is really like, offering handy tips and wry observations that you won?t find anywhere else.
New Boots in New Zealand is aimed at both first-time and experienced trampers, anyone who intends to go on any of the Great Walks, as well as armchair travellers of all ages.
* A new approach to New Zealand tramping books.
* Original and amusing, but also packed with useful information.
* Covers all nine Great Walks: Milford, Routeburn, Abel Tasman, Kepler, Heaphy, Whanganui River, Lake Waikaremoana, Tongariro and Rakiura.
* Includes photographs and maps.
Gillian Orrell was educated at Oxford University, before working for nine years as a Chartered Accountant and Management Consultant in London. She then took sabbatical leave to pursue writing as a career. In her spare time, Gillian plays the piano and also writes ? and occasionally performs ? comic songs. She lives in Hexham in the north of England, close to some of Britain?s greatest walks.
