Mountain Men: Stories From New Zealand's High Country by Rachel Goodchild
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book profiles some 15 great eccentrics from the High Country of the South Island; men who have led interesting and diverse lives working on the land in this dramatic landscape. It is rich with quirky characters and hair-raising experiences. Mountain Men will evoke memories of a more innocent time in New Zealand and remind many readers of their roots. It serves to highlight, even honour, the especially hard lives these jokers had to contend with, particularly by modern standards. The photography, which is utterly beguiling, is a mixture of portrait profiles and landscapes.
