New Zealand's first tramping club, The Tararua Tramping Club celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.

These days tramping is a mainstream leisure pursuit but In 1919 it was viewed as a very odd way to spend your time.

Writers and outdoor enthusiasts Shaun Barnett and Chris Maclean have written a book, Leading the Way, which explores the history of the club and how tramping has changed over the century.
