This book serves several functions. Firstly it is a guide, so there are chapters on each of the major regions. To complement these verbal descriptions, a series of maps is included which carefully integrate with the written word so that confusion over route directions is reduced to a minimum. There are also photographs with overlaid routes.
In addition, there is a chapter on the environment which comprises geology, flora, fauna and weather notes, as well as chapters on the history of human exploration and adventure in the region. Adventure is a more fitting term than exploration because many of the participants deliberately put themselves into uncomfortable and uncertain situations and circumstances that the explorer normally avoids. These historical accounts describe some of the more extreme undertakings possible and it is hoped that these stories will inspire those of similar inclination to create their own Tasmanian challenge.
