Reflections from the jagged peaks of New Zealand’s Southern Alps to the scorching deserts and steaming jungles of Africa. In turn wildly adventurous and gently sentimental, these essays are, in Ryan’s own words, ‘a hymn to an old way of life, and a long love letter of sorts.’ Available in July 2021.
Adventures across the last great hunting and angling frontiers of the world. Available in good bookstores across New Zealand, or buy from Amazon.com. ‘Pete Ryan is one hell of a writer – he writes as a man who knows the ground on which he walks, the waters in which he wades.’

A touching tribute to the game animals, people and places that have made New Zealand one of the last great hunting adventures. #7 on the New Zealand best seller list (all book categories) on debut. ‘This will stop you in your tracks – beautiful, heartfelt and honest.’ Fieldsports (UK)
