Jim DuFresne has a has deep rooted passion for two things; sunsets and shoreline, no doubt the result of living his entire life in the two states that have more coastline than any other; Alaska and Michigan.

After graduating from Michigan State University with a journalism degree, Jim was soon headed to Juneau, Alaska. As the outdoors and sports editor of the Juneau Empire, Jim became the first Alaskan sportswriter to win a national award from Associated Press. More significant than the writing award, Jim discovered his passion for the mountains and wilderness travel while living in Alaska's capital city.

In 1981, Jim spent a winter in New Zealand to backpack and write his first book, Tramping in New Zealand for Lonely Planet. Six editions and almost 30 years later Tramping in New Zealand is the world's bestselling guidebook to backpacking in that country. Jim followed up with the first edition of Lonely Planet's Alaska and later Hiking in Alaska and then returned to Michigan to write Isle Royale National Park: Foot Trails & Water Routes. The guide to the wilderness areas of Isle Royale has been in publication in various editions for more than 25 years and today is known as the "backpacker's bible" to the Lake Superior island.

Today DuFresne lives in Michigan where he's never more than an hour's drive from the shoreline of the Great Lakes. He is the main contributor to [Link Removed] a resource web site devoted to trail users and the promotion of trails in his home state. He still heads back to Alaska frequently to update his Lonely Planet guidebooks, only now he doesn't have to live there in the winter. In Michigan DuFresne can be found out on the trail, whether it is hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing as the author to more than 20 guidebooks.

    Pretty good. But Moires South is better for South Island tramping/trekking/hiking. Everyone in NZ will tell you that. Too bad it's out of print. But you can go to any local library in NZ and take a look at it for reference. Very worth it.

  • Don't bother.

    I'd agree with the other reviewers here -- a lot of the same information can be found on various web sites. However, the book is portable, and can be used on the road to give some background on the various areas. Not great for day hiking though, which was kind of what I was looking for.

  • This guide book has good information about MANY areas and routes in New Zealand

    This guide book has good information about MANY areas and routes in New Zealand.  It's well organized, and the amount on each subject is brief enough to avoid overwhelming the reader.  You might use this book to decide what few areas really interest you, and then seek more information on those few.

    I purchased this book as I assumed it would have DAY hikes as well as multi-day hikes in it.  Once I began using it in New Zealand, I found that its focus was on multi-day hikes in national parks, which would not be a bummer except it was all information which I could obtain, for FREE, from the Department of Conservation (DOC) website and at I-Sites all around New Zealand.  My suggestion to people traveling to NZ who want to day hike along the way (there are lots of regional and conservation parks which are totally worthwhile experiencing) is to stop by a town's I-Site (which are everywhere in NZ), ask about local hikes and/or purchase local day hike guides which are much better than this book.

  • Experiencing New Zealand on foot is AMAZING!!

    Great guide for those who like the great outdoors and want to experience the amazing beauty of NZ by foot. There are some awesome hikes in here and some I have even done myself. This guide is full of lots of useful information and many great hints and tips to help you get the best out of the trails you explore.

  • Excellent guidebook.

    This book was a big help to me in preparing for a five-week backpack trip in New Zealand.

    For a non-resident of NZ, this book has too much on the extended tramps and not enough on the day hikes.  As a visitor, I'm not able to do the multi-days but would have liked more info on the best day hikes.

  • I want to go tramping!

    Haven't actually done any tramps yet but it certainly whets the appetite! And it's shiny and smells nice. And has wonderful pictures.

  • Terrible for Day Hikes

    The guide was pretentious and focused on multi-day hikes. The entry on the Tongariro Alpine Crossing was atrocious. I do not recommend.

  • A complete waste of money!
    A complete waste of money!

    2014-11-11

    I am usually a fan of Lonely Planet guides, but I felt that this one was completely useless for just about every type of tramper who will likely buy it.  The book features 5 or 6 multi-day hikes in each of the nine regions.  As a casual tourist looking to get a taste of true New Zealand, the hikes described in this book are likely too long for your trip.  As a serious hiker looking for detailed information about some of the longer tracks, this isn't going to tell you anything that the DOC website doesn't already state.
    I moved to New Zealand 6 months ago and have yet to find this book useful, either for my own long term hiking purposes or for short term visitors.  If you want a good hiking guide with off-the-beaten-path recommendations, check out the NZ Frenzy series.  If you're a serious hiker looking for multi-day hikes, save your money and go right to the DOC website!
