This book of 129 pages, ' Tales of the Coast ' was written and signed by Jim Henderson and published by Heinemann in 1984 as a 1st Edition.

14 x 22 cms ; light ageing ; pages clean & intact ; good condition.

Here, in admiration and a kind of neighbourly homage, is the beloved Westland, seen through the individualistic minds, hearts and strength of her wry, steadfast people who make up New Zealand's most distinctive and possibly most powerfully beautiful province.

' I am weary of dear diverse Westland being portrayed as our refuge for indolent alcoholic hillbillies, ' writes Jim Henderson, born close by in Nelson Province, ' a Coaster in my blood, and many times preparing radio programmes and documentaries about these folk ... Coasters are proud sturdy people, unwilling to leap into dull routine and conformity ... To glance up, see Mount Cook there, or Tasman, or the spiritual kotuku in flight - I'm homesick already. '

Here, told and then checked by the people themselves, are tales of spirit and adventure, gathered over the years and the many conscientious miles by ' Open Country ' Jim Henderson, with a lifetime of writing, tape recording and broadcasting.

A very reverent, if somewhat unusual salute to the Coast, and the one-and -only Coasters, bless 'em.
