From the acclaimed author of The Trout Diaries
and The Trout Bohemia
, Going to Extremes
tells eleven fascinating stories of New Zealanders – some forgotten, some ‘elite’, some ‘ordinary’ – achieving amazing things. Here the extreme can be found in anything from diving, caving, alpine climbing, and saving endangered species, to maritime rescue and pioneering aviation. The common thread is the inner fire, the passion and the commitment.
