Adventures at the Edge of the World is a weighty hardcover coffee-table type book that tells the story of Tasmanian rockclimbing. This is not just a picture book, but a compilation that brings together the most important old and new stories on Tasmanian climbing from 1914 to the time of publication. Pioneers recount their adventures in their own words through a series of compelling short stories. The land that their words evoke is brought to life in many stunning photographs, making this an inspiring celebration of Tasmania's climbing history.

Australian climbing legend Kim Carrigan has this to say in the foreword to the book:

"Gerry’s book of Tasmanian climbing brings together much of what has previously been written on the subject, as well as covering new ground and in so doing, admirably documents the past and the present before painting an enviable picture for the future. The reading is captivating, the stories engrossing and the people come to life as giants. The Tasmanian culture shines strongly through the host of interviews and the adventures leap off the page that we might one day seek to emulate them".
