New Zealanders are passionate about their four-wheel drives. These vehicles have developed their own particular status in our culture, the mark of someone who relates to an outdoor life and who savours the freedom of being out beyond the edge of town. And it is a deserved status, as New Zealand offers fantastic opportunities for off-road touring.
Out There South is the record of a four-wheel drive adventure through some of the most spectacular country to be found in the South Island, undertaken by leading photographers Chris Morton and Tony Bridge. Their objective was to portray something of the magic to be found off-road in the South Island backcountry. Starting in the huge braided river valleys of South Canterbury, over a period of some weeks they journeyed through the tussock-land of the Mackenzie Country and Central Otago, deep into Fiordland and northern Southland, before tackling some of the wildest and wet forest tracks on the West Coast.
Out There South truly captures the romance and appeal of four-wheel drive adventuring in New Zealand, where there are a myriad of options to get away from the highway and close to the wild parts of this country. This is a musthave book for anyone who owns a four-wheel drive and wants to be inspired by its potential.
