Edge People of Middle Earth

“[LOTR], for all its knockout grandeur, is but the trailer, the preview of the country. NZ doesn’t need to be digitally enhanced. It has an orchestra replete with special effects all of its own.” Headlining feature on NZ marvels at the diversity and splendour of the landscape. The drive from Christchurch to Southland is for writer Clive Irving a surreal journey through “the world in one country.” The people impress as well as the places. He writes: “It is, literally, the jumping-off point for what I will henceforth call the Edge People – all those who can’t wait to leap off the edge of the earth in as many ways possible.”
