In honor of the more than 1,500 huts that dot New Zealand's back roads, this guide provides a fascinating look at 15 of these iconic dwellings. Setting out to discover why and how these huts were built and to learn something about the lives of the men who lived there the book uses historical records to find huts of hunters, shepherds, and boundary-keepers. As the years went by, the huts started to shelter drovers, roadmen, and gold miners, and in the 20th century the huts were used by climbers, skiers, and tourists. The result is a satisfying social and historical appreciation of New Zealand's glorious landscape.
