We invite you to join us for the official launch of
SO FAR SO GOOD
CRAIG POTTON | SO FAR SO GOODThursday 13th October, 5.30pm Craig Potton Gallery + Store
255 Hardy Street, Nelson
In 1980, Craig Potton completed a three-month traverse of the Southern Alps, an extended tramping and mountaineering trip that began near Milford Sound in Fiordland and finished in Nelson Lakes National Park.
Now, over 35 years later, he recounts the experience in So Far, So Good. In part this is the story of four friends embarking on a youthful adventure, dealing with all the challenges of rough terrain and wild weather that travelling in the mountains presents.
But it is also a thoughtful reflection, from one of New Zealand’s prominent conservationists, on what it means to spend an extended period of time in the wilderness. Heavily illustrated with evocative photographs taken on the trip, this is a book for anyone with an interest in tramping and mountaineering, and the transformative experience of wild places.
All So Far, So Good book purchases will be able to be signed at the launch by Craig Potton and his fellow trampers. This would be the perfect present for anyone who loves the New Zealand wilderness!
Please RSVP by Monday 10th October to firstname.lastname@example.org for catering purposes.
