A How-To Handbook for New Zealand Tramping

Sarah Bennett and Lee Slater

The back country of New Zealand offers some of the most beautiful and diverse walking on earth, from the magnificent mountain valleys of the Southern Alps to the enchanting forests of Te Urewera and Lake Waikaremoana.  Experiencing these wild places on foot is one of the most rewarding and uplifting of outdoor activities, and Don't Forget Your Scrggin is a superb starting point.

While there is an abundance of guides that tell you where to go tramping, there is virtually nothing available that is dedicated to telling you how to go tramping.  This book plugs the gap, and is aimed at anyone who is starting out, or has some experience and is getting ready for the next step.

Everything you need to know about is covered, including clothing and footwear; the art of walking; camping and huts; equipment; food and cooking; maps and navigation; safety; and there are also tips, tricks and traps and useful checklists.  Along with the basic information the book is brought to life with a range of real life stories from trampers that illustrate many of the important pints.

Don't Forget Your Scroggin is a valuable and useful addition to our tramping literature.  It strikes an easy balance between being practical and entertaining, and is always focused on ensuring that those new to tramping actually enjoy themselves.
