Listing Detail Tabs

Jim Henderson, has written a score of
books and then got into National Radio,
making a record number of features and
documentaries 'on everyday, invariably
overlooked people who are the guts of
our life'. Agitating for a year, he
succeeded in starting and jealously
running his own never-equalled weekly
national session 'Open Country',
1961-75, eventually over 20 stations.
Here in this specially prepared selection
from New Zealand's most distinctive and
probably best-loved national radio programme,
Jim Henderson completes 'an impossible task',
selecting in one book the best of 14 years' scripts.
A good half of the contributors probably had
never written before but felt impelled to
record and preserve truly worthwhile
moments in their lifetimes.
From the Cape to the Bluff, from childhood
to old age, from the magic grassblade jungle
of a sprawling youngster to the end coming
to a gnarled old high-country Scot farmer,
or a veteran mountain-enraptured Northland
gumdigger - here is the passing pageant of
the land beyond the fret and tension of our
restless cities.
