To The Mountains

From Fiordland to Alaska, New Zealand climbers and lovers of high places have captured their experiences in letters, journals, articles, memoirs, poems and novels. Nic Low, who will soon publish an account of a literary walking expedition of the Southern Alps, talks with award-winning writer Laurence Fearnley about To the Mountains, the anthology she has edited with adventurer and writer Paul Hersey. Drawing on 150 years of published and unpublished material, the book offers a wide-ranging, fascinating and moving glimpse into New Zealand’s mountaineering culture and those who tell its stories.
