the story behind New Zealand’s mountain tourism
A magnificently illustrated history of New Zealand’s mountain tourism industry, this lavish book explores the story behind the promotion of New Zealand’s mountains — through posters, advertisements, hand-coloured photos and more. It explains how the country built its reputation as an alpine playground and, alongside, how mountains became central to belonging to Aotearoa.
