' Seeking the Light' is the story of climbing New Zealand' s 24 highest mountains, those peaks in the Southern Alps/Ka Tiritiri o te Moana that rise above 3000 metres. Written by Wanaka-based mountain guide and adventure photographer Gavin Lang, the account of each climb is illustrated with his breathtaking, world-class imagery. Inspiring and exhilarating, each individual story captures the tension and drama of mountaineering in Aotearoa, but then is vividly brought to life with Gavin' s outstanding photography. ' Seeking the Light' is a beautiful and original contribution to our mountain literature, a must-read for anyone with a love for wild high places.
