A View from the Brothers


Over fifty years ago a farmer member of the Christchurch Club was heard to exclaim: "It's not the rabbits I'm worried about, it's the Rutherford's!" Certainly in the 100-odd years that the Rutherford's have lived in Canterbury, the family has more than excelled itself in the production of heirs. Much of North Canterbury & parts of South Canterbury, are liberally endowed with members of this prolific Scottish clan. Ben Rutherford bought up on a high country sheep station of the old style, and many interesting stories of high country farmers, swaggers, eccentricities of high country cooks, An interesting history of the Rutherford family and New Zealand's role in International show jumping competitions, horse racing, Canterbury sheep farming, shooting, dog trialling, with an account of author's visit to Tokyo Olympic games as manager of the New Zealand equestrian squad, a real magnificent kiwi country story here, well illustrated.

Overall condition of this hard cover book is good but there is one page tornout that will need taped back in.
