John Pascoe
John Pascoe

In his heyday, John Pascoe (1908-1972) was known as "Man of the Mountains", an accolade he earned for climbing virgin peaks and as the author of numerous books on early exploration and mountaineering. This reputation was won through sheer determination and stamina, as Pascoe was not blessed with the physique of an adventurer. But these achievements have tended to obscure his other remarkable contributions to New Zealand life - as a photographer, historian, archivist and administrator. In this lively and revealing biography, Chris Maclean looks beyond Pascoe's alpine exploits, which made him a legend in his lifetime, to draw a memorable portrait of a generous, vital and enthusiastic man.
