Our Silk Road? Scott Hamilton on Ghost South Road

From Standing Room Only, 1:33 pm on 17 June 2018

Could it be our old Silk Road or indeed our equivalent of a Roman Road?

The Great South Road. It's almost three years ago since we talked to writer Scott Hamilton and filmmaker Paul Janman about their 200 kilometre journey down the Great South Road, which extends from Auckland down into the Waikato. A film is in development about the stories they encountered, and now a book has been published by Atuanui Press. Mark Amery caught up with Scott Hamilton about how past and present come together for the future in his book Ghost South Road. You can preview the book online here.
