Fair Weather Trampers by Julia Millen

Almost True Tramping Tales   RRP $30


Fair Weather Trampers: In the New Zealand Bush with the Cock & Bull Tramping Club with sketches by Barbara O’Reilly.

One summer morning a group of drinking mates set out for a short walk. Twelve hours later, exhausted and footsore, they straggle on to Makara Beach. So begins the story of the Cock & Bull Tramping Club.

Inspired by The Compleat Tramper – advocate of ancient equipment, oilskin parkas, woollen long-johns – the Cock & Bull trampers embark on a series of adventures, and disasters, bush-bashing, struggling over the tops, battling leatherwood and sleet.
