Down The Bay With Philip Simpson

Monday 24 June 2019

Philip Simpson is one of our most well known local writers on natural history topics.

Simpson has written award winning books on some of New Zealand’s best loved native trees – such as Tōtara and Pōhutukawa. Now he has turned his attention to the Abel Tasman National Park and written a beautiful account of the distinctive landforms of Abel Tasman, from the granite headlands and golden-sand beaches of the coast to the deep caves of the uplands, the diversity of plants and animals, the marine environment, and the overlay of both Māori and European history.

Listen to Philip Simpson talk about Down The Bay: A Natural and Cultural History of Abel Tasman National Park at Richmond Library, 12.00pm-1.00pm on Tuesday 2 July.

Cash book sales available.

All welcome.
