Description

This book is for people who enjoy driving and exploring the stories of our back roads, but most of all it is for people who love New Zealand, whether they choose to do it from behind the wheel of their SUV or the comfort of their sofa. Stories from our Backroads: South lsland will introduce you to some fascinating stories of, tracks, trails and back roads across the South Island. Many of them cross through forgotten parts of the country, and all of them have their own rich and exciting stories. Whether they follow the route of Maori foot trails or the path of early European settlers, each adds something to our history. For example, Ray drives the Danseys Pass Road before heading out onto the trails that cross the Oteake Conservation Park high above the Maniototo Plains. There he explores the huts and diggings left behind by the gold miners who flocked to the place in the 1860s, before heading back down to the old gold town of Naseby.

Author Biography

Ray Stone has driven each of these tracks, and provides not only the story behind them, but also a vivid description of each route, notes on the markers to look out for along the way and maps for those who want to go and drive them themselves. According to Ray, 'If this book encourages readers to understand and value our unique network of historic back roads and tracks, and assists in the appreciation of our ever changing magnificent New Zealand vistas through which they pass, then it has achieved its objective.' Ray is based in Taupo, New Zealand.
