Praise

“In an age of adventure which is all too packaged, sponsored, televised, and worse, “guided” by experts, “Peak to Peak” is a rare account of a refreshing attitude towards tackling the oceans and the mountains on their own terms. Rawlinson’s adventure, where the eventual outcome was always in doubt until the final moments, is an inspiring read”

– David Lim, Leader of the first Singapore Mr Everest Expedition

” Explorers are a dying breed…I’m told…but, hey, think of two great New Zealand peaks and an ugly stretch of water between them and dare to dream of making one tough overland journey and you have Grant ‘Axe’s quest…undertaken with a mate…helluva trip…great read!” 

– Colin Monteath, Polar and mountain photographer Hedgehog House

“Entertaining and Insightful. From Peak to Peak captures the essence of why adventure is important to the human spirit and proves that great challenges can be achieved on even the most shoestring budget.”

– Andrew Lock, OAM, Australian Geographic Society Adventurer of the year and the 1st Commonwealth mountaineer to climb all 14 of the worlds 8000m peaks
