Description

Robbie Burton is a tramper, mountain-lover and book publisher, who has had a life-long infatuation with the wild places of New Zealand. In this memoir, Bushline,  he recalls a childhood in which the natural world played a central part, and led to a youthful obsession with tramping, skiing and mountaineering. In his long career at the helm of Potton & Burton, one of New Zealand’s largest independent publishers, he has continued this interest by publishing many significant books about the outdoors and our natural history. Bushline is a blend of reflection about the backcountry and the people who inhabit it, the authors who write about it and the books they have produced, as well as an inside view into independent publishing in Aotearoa. Ultimately, though, it is a book about belonging, and how a life has been shaped by the power and beauty of the New Zealand landscape.

About the Author

Robbie Burton was born, and has lived most of his life, in Nelson. After working as a conservationist and then a community arts worker, he began in 1990 as the publisher at Craig Potton Publishing, now Potton & Burton. Over the last three decades, Potton & Burton has grown into one of New Zealand’s largest independent publishers, entirely focused on non-fiction books. He continues to live in central Nelson with his family, and to get out into the backcountry whenever he can.
