Accessible Walks: A Guide to Scenic South Island Walks in New Zealand is a comprehensive guide, providing detailed information about the accessibility, for older people and those with disabilities or young families, of nearly 100 scenic walks in the South Island of New Zealand. Written by Anna Jameson, who has a disability, and her brother Andrew, a keen alpine climber, this unique book offers encouragement to older people and those with disabilities or young families get out and experience the South Island's wild beauty for themselves. Every walk has been completed by the authors, with Anna using her wheelchair. Now, with this practical guide, you can easily explore some of the South Island's most scenic places.
