Lynley Hargreaves | hard cover | 196 pages | 2022

Written by Lynley Hargreaves, this important book tells the stories of our glaciers through the lens of human interaction, with chapters moving through time from first Māori discoverers to colonial explorers, mountaineers and modern glaciologists. In the process, the book investigates the way nature, science and culture interact and sometimes collide, while providing a fascinating insight into the way New Zealand’s glaciers work. As the world warms, our glaciers are disappearing at an unprecedented rate, which gives Vanishing Ice an important, if not poignant, place in the books about Aotearoa’s natural world.
