Go to extremes and win
We have two copies of adventurer Derek Grzelewski’s new book Going to Extremes: Adventures in Unknown New Zealand.
The book is a compendium of adventure writing, from caving to the wilds of south Westland, wreck diving and back country expeditions. The stories in the book were all published in either New Zealand Geographic or the Smithsonian: Don Merton’s remarkable rescue of the kakapo, the science of avalanches, the heroics of volunteer firemen and stories of individuals including accidental explorer Alphonse Barrington, Jean Batten, Arthur Lydiard and Kelly Tarlton.
The book is published this week to coincide with the New Zealand Mountain Film Festival, where Grzelewski was running an adventure writing workshop.

The book is the third by Wanaka-based Grzelewski. The previous two tales of fly-fishing in New Zealand are big sellers overseas.
