The world of low-budget travel can be summed up with one image: the backpacker. This is the tale of Andrew Stevenson's hitchhike around New Zealand. It captures the life of the backpacker, from spending time in a Maori settlement to being caught in a snowstorm on an exposed mountain track.

From Library Journal:

These days, the travel sections of bookstores and libraries are so full that it's difficult for most writers to distinguish themselves. Stevenson, a professional travel writer who spent four months bopping around New Zealand, blends anthropological, biological, and practical observations for an irresistible read. He covers the rural and urban sections of both islands as well as national parks, ably describing the array of travel enthusiasts and native characters he encounters. Throughout, his writing is engaging without being cloying. People who enjoy travel writing for its own sake will like this, and those seeking "on the ground" information about New Zealand will also find it useful. For larger public libraries.
