Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The West Coast of the South Island is a vast area, stretching from the Heaphy Track in the north to Jackson Bay in the south - the range of walks is astonishing and this is the first guidebook to cover all of the west coast. Over 50 day walks throughout this area are included, namely Karamea & Granity Coast, Paparoa Coast, Reefton & Grey River Valley, around Lake Brunner, Hokitika & Lake Kaniere, South Westland & Haast, as well as nearly a dozen other day walks in sight of lagoons and glaciers such as the Franz Josef, Fox Glacier, Lake Matheson and Gillespies Beach & Seal Colony. Detailed access notes and travelling times accompany descriptions of the geography, climate, wildlife and fascinating notes on the history of Maori and European occupation of the area.
