Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for A RADICAL WRITER'S LIFE by Dick Scott.

"This is an illuminating autobiography, with plenty of revelations about seminal events and national figures. Scott discusses his career as an historian and writer, retracing his early life in Manawatu, his role in the Communist Party, the 1951 Waterfront Strike, and his many later political and literary endeavours. Scott's narration of his own 'Parihaka Story' is both moving and fascinating, and his portraits of legendary New Zealand figures - from Jock Barnes through to Tony Fomison - will engross every reader."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dick Scott has written widely on New Zealand history, and it was in tracing the early vineyards of the North that he first came upon Pahi - and fell for its placid beauty. He moved an old pit-sawn cottage to the tip of the peninsula ten years ago and has been planting trees to restore some of the "gorgeous chain of scarlet" that ringed the coastline in Jane Mander's time.
