What the readers have to say

Warwick Sprawson’s complete guide to the Overland Track is just that: a complete guide. Most bushwalkers will have ample reason to find space in their rucksacks for this book. And I won’t be surprised if it rapidly becomes the standard for professional guides working on the Overland Track each summer.
