Seeing the country afresh on foot, 73-year old Denis Dwyer embarks on a series of day-walks, and narrates his experiences, and provides detail about each track/walkway in New Zealand on Foot.
In humorous, good-natured style, he travels through countryside, towns, cities and islands, mostly solo, also with family and friends. He covers a vast array of landscapes: from kauri forests, to volcanoes, parks and streets, old battle sites, wetlands and gardens, native flora, springs and streams, boardwalks, a crater rim, the floor of an inferno, and mountains.
New Zealand on Foot boasts over 200 well-known and lesser-known easy day-walks through the country. It is the perfect gift for anyone looking to explore walks in different regions around the country. It also stresses importance of conserving walkways and preserving environment for future generations
