The spunky family that dived into South Island life in Once a Land of Birds and explored New Zealand’s North Island in This Dark Sheltering Forest sets out on exciting new adventures amid some of South Island’s most riveting landscapes.
With awareness and a rich turn of phrase, Magi Nams portrays South Island’s natural beauty and reveals how some landscapes her family explores during five final months in New Zealand are those of the heart, and how some trails lead not up mountains but to new peaks within.
Back on South Island, the Nams battle homeschool tensions and adventure inertia then rebound to backpack the Abel Tasman Coast Track, watch the Aurora Australis from a mountain top, hike to a brooding creek with a history of disaster, follow flashlights deep into caves, and climb over icy bedrock to a look-off in breathtaking glacier country. As the family’s trip of a lifetime draws to a close, it becomes clear that New Zealand’s heart lies as much in its people as in its scenic landscapes and intriguing flora and fauna.
