This is an auction for THE PRICE OF BACON by Jeanette Aplin.

"Living on the isolated and beautiful D'Urville Island in the Marlborough Sounds, Jeanette Aplin writes candidly about the challenges of daily life - no electricity, no roads to the door, a solar-powered computer giving her contact with family and friends elsewhere. Pigs are the focus of this book - this is the story about the adventures and dilemmas which face Jeanette as she raises kunekune pigs. But it is also about other animals, wildlife, and lifestyle - a way of life that is almost lost to New Zealand forever. Her two previous accounts of life in remote parts of New Zealand - The Lighthouse Children's Mother and The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife - have sold widely."

About the Author: Jeanette Aplin lives with her husband Pip on D'Urville Island. On her own most of the time while Pip works on the mainland, Jeanette deals with rampaging wild pigs, friends anchoring offshore with crayfish for supper, arranging transport for her kunekune pigs to other breeders - by boat to the mainland, air and then road transport - and the rest of daily life.
