Book review: See From The Road

New Zealand’s most significant line of communication, State Highway 1, has become the topic of television programmes, inspired tunes, has become the source content of more novels than pretty much anything on these coasts beyond the All Blacks and featured in movies.

This latest cooperation from New Zealand Geographic photographer Arno Gasteiger along with the magazine’s founding editor Kennedy Warne follows a similar arrangement to their previous novel 45 South.

How many of us, nevertheless, would be aware that its route is historical accident than by design and the highway suitable is less than 50 years old?

Gasteiger’s view cements the story that is modern with his customary high standard.

But it is a novel about the individuals who exist along the anchor in our nation’s as much as the lovely scenes which are afforded by travelling on this course.

I feel a little like the prior, wishing it’d last a bit more time to research the latter.
