What the readers have to say

Every now and then a new title comes out that really impresses me. The new walking guide, The Overland Track, by Warwick Sprawson is one of those guides. The cover indicates that this is a “complete guide to walking, flora, fauna and history” and it doesn’t disappoint.

[…] the book packs in plenty of valuable information about the flora and fauna, all lushly illustrated with dozens of colour photographs. There is also a well written section on history and geology. As a bonus, the guide also comes with a high-quality A3(ish) plasticised map which can be removed from the back of the guide.
