The Club owns two wonderful hard covered books which you are welcome to borrow.
Waitakere Ranges which has over 50 contributors and covers the natural history, history and arts and writers of the Ranges area. Over 500 pages, in full colour and lavishly illustrated this book has something for everyone who loves the beautiful Waitakere Ranges and is available for members to borrow.
Tramping – A New Zealand History tells the story of the development of tramping in New Zealand, tracing its origins to the way Maori and early Europeans engaged with the sometimes forbidding New Zealand mountains and bush. It describes how state-sponsored tracks and huts were developed for tourism in the late nineteenth century, most notably on the Milford Track, described as ‘the finest walk in the world’.
