Listing Detail Tabs


Think of the Waikato region and a settled landscape of dairy farms and sheep farms comes to mind. But today's prosperous countryside was wrestled from peat swamps and bush-clad hills by Waikato's pioneers through years of hard yakka, improvisation and doing without. However, there was also lots of laughter and wonderful stories, from back then and today. David Henshaw and Graham McBride, both great story-tellers and story-gatherers, have brought together a collection of yarns – some true and some embellished in the telling – that celebrate the Waikato and its people. With paintings, sketches and cartoons by David, New Zealand's favourite country artist.
Hard times and hard lives generate hard-case characters, and with them go a host of yarns. The Waikato is no exception. Tucked away beneath the veneer of success, green pastures and four-wheelers there is a background of years of hard labour and drudgery, and a good sense of humour helps to smooth the rugged hills in between.
