About Lonely Planet: Lonely Planet is a leading travel media company and the world’s number one travel guidebook brand, providing both inspiring and trustworthy information for every kind of traveller since 1973.

Hellbent for Paradise is the inspiring – and often nail biting – tale of Zoë Cano’s exploits roaming the jaw-dropping natural wonders of Aotearoa New Zealand on a mission to find her own paradise. It draws adventure-seekers from across the globe to leap off bridges and thrash through surging rivers, yet it’s one of the most laid-back places on Earth, with endless opportunities to soak, laze and wander amid truly beautiful scenery. Magi and the boys learn that New Zealand was the last large landmass to be populated by humans and delve into the history of this "land of birds" and its settlement by Maori and Europeans.From tropical beaches to rainforests to glaciers to mountains to volcanoes and even a desert (sort of), this country has it all. New Zealand’s attractions are spread widely across the country and public transport can be limited, making it the perfect destination for a road trip. Along the way, Magi Nams portrays New Zealand's landscapes with vivid imagery and reflects on the impact of invasive species on the ecology of New Zealand's fragile native ecosystems, and the challenges inherent in living and homeschooling abroad. Now, the best of her stories, essays, and voyage logs are collected in this freshly-edited volume for all to enjoy. This guide is full-color throughout, with a pull-out map of the entire region for easy navigation between tours, and zip code information for use with a GPS device.

Interwoven with descriptions of Hōkūleʻa's experiences in port are the voices of the master navigators and crew members, who guide the ship along the ocean's trackless path, and the local pioneers -- scientists, teachers, and children touched by Hōkūleʻa - who work tirelessly to weather the many environmental challenges in our modern lives.

Here, as the name suggests, hot underwater springs emerge, allowing beachgoers an unimaginable luxury: to dig a hole in the sand and soak in a warm pool by the sea. Her story of Coorain and the road from Coorain startles by its passion and evocative power, by its understanding of the ways in which a total, deep-rooted commitment to place—or to a dream—can at once liberate and imprison.
