ARAHURA Pathway to the Setting Sun
In December 1994 Richard Ackerley and his brother Kevi set out to achieve an East West crossing of New Zealand. From the north Island's east Cape to the West Cape in Fiordland, by no motive power.

The crossing would take them 133 days to complete. Along the way they would go as high as possible -the summit of Mount Cook - and as low - down harwood's Hole.
It was to be a journey of many extremes.

The author Richard Ackerley, suffered a fatal fall whilst mountaineering in Pakistan in July 1999.

After his accident his family have now published this book as a tribute to Richard's life.
Richard intended to publish this book himself as he was very proud of completeing this East Cape to West Cape traverse.

An Adventure story with 146 pages and approx. 300 colour photos spred throughout this book.

The format is soft cover A4 Landscape.
