Description


Down A Country Road is a brilliant collection of stories (24) throughout the last 140 years about the eccentric, colourful personalities who have made the remote back-country of New Zealand's South Island their home.


An evocative reminiscence of a way of life that has largely disappeared, it celebrates the indefatigable and resilient settlers and a lifestyle and connection with the environment that Kiwis still strongly identify with today. The wry humour and staunchness of the Kiwi characters and their tales of surviving the harsh conditions are a revelation.


200 pages including superb original photography and Illustrations complement these incredible stories.
