Bold Beyond Belief - BILL DENZ

New Zealand's Mountain Warrior

About the book.

BOLD BEYOND BELIEF was first published in December 2011. The first print run sold out within months, leading to a reprint / second edition being released in 2013. The book took three years to produce. In its production Paul Maxim fully utilised Denz’s own personal archive and slide collection as well as the full support and assistance offered from the Denz family, Bill’s partners and his numerous climbing acquaintances and friends from around the world.  The result is a book that features:

  • A Foreword by Greg Child
  • 15 chapters covering all aspects of Denz’s career
  • An Ascents and Expeditions list
  • 328 pages, (164 x 230 mm)
  • 82 black and white photographs
  • 16 full page colour plates

The publication of this book has been fully endorsed by the New Zealand Alpine Club, with valued support from the Canterbury Mountaineering Club (CMC), the Federated Mountain Clubs of new Zealand (FMC) and Otago Tramping and Mountaineering Club (OTMC).
