This is an auction for HURRICANE TIM: THE STORY OF SIR TIM WALLIS by Neville Peat.

"When Sir Tim Wallis's Spitfire crashed at Wanaka Airport in 1996, the accident was reported around the world. This lion-hearted Southern New Zealand man, a legendary figure in the aviation, deer farming and business worlds, was suddenly fighting for his life. His life had been dynamic, filled with adventure, risk and success. Would he recover? Tim Wallis is known as the helicopter pilot and entrepreneur who pioneered New Zealand's deer industry. He was a pathfinder in what has been described as 'New Zealand's Last Great Adventure' - the recovery of red deer from the Southern Alps in the 1960s and 1970s. He dazzled his peers then with his innovative use of helicopters to capture wild deer live. A multi-millionaire, he is also the man behind the phenomenally successful Warbirds Over Wanaka air pageant. In recent decades he's had a passion for collecting, restoring and flying vintage fighter planes, best expressed by his Alpine Fighter Collection and a museum he set up to commemorate New Zealand fighter pilots. Tim's life story is told here by writer Neville Peat, who shares Tim's great love of the South: Fiordland, South Westland, Central Otago and the Southern Alps. Hurricane Tim is an absorbing, dramatically illustrated account of the adventures of Tim Wallis not only in New Zealand but also in far-away places where he applied his business instincts - southern Siberia, tropical Vanuatu and Canada."
