Two New Zealanders who have always dreamed of living the good life on the land, struggle to establish a working horse farm in the United States. "Seventy-something Acres" zigs and zags between the US and New Zealand, with forays into China, while crisis follows crisis on the long-abandoned acres - crises involving a cast of extraordinary people as well as animals. This true story is based on weekly recorded fact. The author is a top rider, competitor and judge who brings much more than horse-lore and horse-sense to her book. It is also a heartening story of courage, enterprise and the will to win through.
