Beyond the Southern Lakes. The explorations of W.G. Grave, edited by Anita Crozier. 1950 1st edition. 124 pages. Book is clean and tight without inscriptions, jacket is chipped, as seen in picture but still pretty much complete, now in protective cover.

Over fifty years ago, W. G. Grave, then a master at Waitaki Boys' High School, led his first expedition into the wild, unexplored country between the great lakes of Otago and the western fiords.

This book, which has been compiled by his eldest daughter from Grave's lecture notes an diaries, gives a remarkable picture of determination and physical endurance in the face of tremendous hardship and, generally, atrocious weather conditions.

The book draws from the amazing explorers lecture notes and diaries about his exploration of the wild, unexplored country between the great lakes of Otago and the western fiords. This was in 1887 when he persuaded a group of companions to accompany him on a walking tour of about 350 miles over the old coach roads of North and Central Otago.

Beyond the Southern Lakes is a record of hardship and disappointment. However, it is also a record of the feats of a man who achieved amazing and historically important forays into the often treacherous climes of one of the most beautiful areas in New Zealand. Please click here to ask a question
