Kokoda – Images of a Rugged Journey by renowned photographer Ross Eason is a unique collection of photographs that epitomise the mood of the Kokoda Track.

Many of the images in the book are scenes too vast for conventional cameras and that realistically demonstrate the incredible power, beauty and magnitude of the Kokoda Trail.
