In his heyday, Pascoe (1908-1972) was known as the 'Man of the Mountains', an accolade he earned for climbing many virgin peaks in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, and as the author of numerous books on early exploration and mountaineering. But these achievements have obscured his other remarkable contributions to New Zealand life - as a photographer, historian, archivist and administrator. In this lively and revealing biography, Maclean looks beyond the alpine exploits which made him a legend in his lifetime, to draw a memorable portrait of a generous, vital and enthusiastic man. With many photos taken by Pascoe, this book will appeal to those who share his passion for the outdoors, and to anyone interested in New Zealand's historical and cultural development in the 20th Century. This book weighs 3.5 pounds.
