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.
