This is an auction for SNOW STORM: THE SOUTH ISLAND'S BIG CHILL 2006.

"The snowstorm that struck the South Island on June 11-12 2006 brought between 75cm and 90cm of snow to the townships of Fairlie and Burkes Pass in the South Island's Mackenzie district. The coastal towns of Ashburton received 38cm and Timaru 24cm. The last similar-sized storm was on August 5-6, 1973, when 90cm of snow fell at Methven, in Mid-Canterbury, when 100,000 sheep were killed and the power supply and communications were badly disrupted, as in the latest storm. In November 1967, between 60cm and 90cm fell in the South Island's Mackenzie district. Up to 70,000 sheep were killed, there were widespread power outages and crop losses, and some called it the worst snowfall in living memory. This illustrated book recording the big chill of June 2006, drawn from photographs supplied by the people of Canterbury, is also a tribute to a community which rose to the challenge in a crisis. Friends and neighbours mucked in together. People sought out the elderly to lend a hand or supply hot meals. Families moved in with friends. Four-wheel drive clubs made their vehicles available and businesses supplied goods and services free of charge."
