Lonely Planet Tramping in New Zealand (Lonely Planet Tramping in New Zealand)This edition is superior to the previous editions. It’s new organization and additional information sections are a marked improvement. A new section on Flora and Fauna gives a highlight of any New Zealand tramp, making this an excellent reference book. Of course, if the book contained every piece of required information, (i.e. highly detailed maps and every step of the way instructions) it would require thousands of pages; the authors get around this by including instructions on how to obtain the missing information. The book is perfect for those that are looking into or planning a backpacking trek to New Zealand, and comes highly recommended.
