From North Cape To Bluff - A H Reed
Hard Back 272 pages
Ex library book
A younger man might have been tempted to break records, an older man . . . but then it is unlikely that there will ever be an older man than Mr A H Reed walking the whole length of New Zealand; therefore, the walk he has just completed must be considered as unique. It can never be equalled or exceeded because there will never be another like A H Reed. There will never be another white-haired, white-moustached, ruddy-cheeked, spare-framed, waistcoated, floppy-hatted, ordinary yet extraordinary bundle of irrepressible energy loping along New Zealand's highways and byways.

Never seeming to hurry, always ready to exchange a cheery word with a child or cynic, A H Reed could and did outpace mentally and physically men half his age. More than anything, his philosophy about life, his simple, seemingly naive, belief in humanity's inherent goodness made his journeying throughout the country a Pilgrim's Progress which made a deep and lasting impression on all who were fortunate enough to see him pass by.

A H Reed's walk was remarkable no so much for proving that an old man can walk the whole length of the country without ill effects, but for the effect his personality has had on thousands of New Zealanders. He reminded us that in this bustling modern world there is still a place for the simple pleasures and we like to think of him as still journeying on, unassuming, kindly and courteous, the eternal optimist.
