From Snow to Ash

From Snow to Ash

At the start of the hellish, fiery Australian summer of 2019/20, Walkley Award-winning journalist and suburban dad Anthony Sharwood set off on a journey. Abandoning his post on a busy news website to clear his mind, he solo-trekked the Australian Alps Walking Track, Australia’s most gruelling and breathtakingly beautiful mainland hiking trail, which traverses the entirety of the legendary High Country from Gippsland in Victoria to the outskirts of Canberra.

The journey started in a blizzard and ended in a blaze.

Three books set the gold standard for stories about walking [...] Now we might add to that list a distinctive, charming narrative by Anthony Sharwood, about a walk which ends in our backyard.

Feature Review - At several points Sharwood laments that even among the bushwalking fraternity, the AAWT is relatively unknown. "Maybe one day it will get the attention it deserves." He needn't worry. For in penning Snow to Ash, Sharwood has almost single-handedly achieved that.
