The finale to a travel adventure of a lifetime! Written by award-winning nature writer, Magi Nams, Tang of the Tasman Sea is Book 3 of the New Zealand travel adventure trilogy, Cry of the Kiwi: A Family's New Zealand Adventure. Back on South Island, the Nams family battles adventure inertia and homeschool tensions. The foursome rebounds to explore a honeydew ecosystem and backpack Abel Tasman Coast Track, one of New Zealand's Great Walks. They cross the Southern Alps to hike to a brooding creek with a history of disaster, follow flashlights deep into caves, and kayak a tidal river that empties into the Tasman Sea. Between winter storms, the Nams climb through dank West Coast rainforest and over icy bedrock to a spectacular lookoff in glacier country. As the family's adventure of a lifetime draws to a close, it becomes clear that the heart of New Zealand lies in more than its riveting landscapes and intriguing flora and fauna.
