Tasmanian Summits to Sleep On is part autobiography, part bushwalking docudrama by Kevin Doran. This beautiful coffee table book is a follow up to Kevin's authoritative book on Federation Peak, and contains a wealth of outstanding Tasmanian wilderness images printed in high resolution over 128 pages. It is an amazing photographic selection of intimate decades spent with and on many of Tasmania's famed mountain summits
In its foreword, Bookend Trust patron and famous Australian author Bryce Courtenay gives Tasmania the “world’s best” accolade for scenic beauty, while Kevin’s pictures and text provide the supporting evidence.

the book is fully printed and produced in Tasmania. All sales are to
