Tongariro National Park: An Artists Field Guide

From Afternoons, 1:35 pm on 6 November 2023

After 30 years living in France author nature and wildlife artist Desmond Bovey had a strong pull to reconnect with home and the landscapes of his youth.

Following a chance encounter with a native falcon/kārearea during a walk between Whakapapa and the Whakpapaiti Valley, he was inspired to write his book about the Tongariro National Park.

Desmond speaks to Jesse about the project and the illustrations he drew himself.
