What the readers have to say

What a fantastic book! 
I was very fortunate to win a copy of this book as it is a gem. 
An absolute must have for hikers who undertake Tasmania's Overland Track.
The book includes everything you need to ensure that your trip is not only very much more rewarding but safer too.
Containing not only lots of wonderful photos and information of the scenery and hut accommodation but also the possible flora and fauna you may see on the Track. 
Many interesting side-trips are also included - in fact the book covers everything you could possibly want to know about this amazing walk.
The fold-out waterproof map and the actual compact size of the book are just the icing on the cake.
