About the Author

Shaun Barnett has tramped the length and breadth of New Zealand, including a piecemeal traverse of the Southern Alps. After working for the Department of Conservation, he turned to writing and photography, and co-wrote the Montana Award-winning 'Classic Tramping in New Zealand' (with Rob Brown). Several other best-selling guidebooks followed. More recently, he has written books focused on backcountry history, including 'Shelter from the Storm: The story of New Zealand's backcountry huts' (with Rob Brown and Geoff Spearpoint), which won the New Zealand Booksellers' Choice Award in 2013, and 'Tramping, A New Zealand History' (with Chris Maclean) which was long listed for the Ockham Book Awards in 2016. His most recent book is 'Across the Pass: a collection of New Zealand tramping writing' (2021). Shaun lives with his family in Wellington. Geoff Spearpoint began tramping in the Tararuas, spending his first night in a hut (Cone) during 1966 when he was 15. He joined the Hutt Valley Tramping Club and later the New Zealand Alpine Club (and is now a life member of both) following a passion of transalpine tramping and climbing trips. Initially trained in microbiology, he later worked for Mount Aspiring National Park and spent many years in the print industry in pre-press. Prior to co-authoring 'Shelter from the Storm', Geoff wrote 'Waking to the Hills' various articles for club journals and Wilderness magazine, edited 'Moir's Guide North', co-authored 'The Canterbury Westland Alps' and contributed a chapter to 'Wild Heart. A member of the Peninsula Tramping Club', Geoff lives in his own hut at Birdlings Flat on the Canterbury coast with his wife. Rob Brown has been tramping and climbing throughout New Zealand for over 30 years. After working in the outdoor equipment and book publishing industries, he became a full-time landscape photographer in 2001. A co-author of 'Shelter from the Storm' and 'Classic Tramping in New Zealand', Rob also authored 'Rakiura: The Wilderness of Stewart Island' and 'New Zealand: The Essential Landscape'. For the last three and a half years he has been the manager of the Backcountry Trust, which is funded by DOC to carry out maintenance on backcountry huts and tracks. Rob lives with his family in Wanaka.
