The Good Logs of Algidus by Mona Anderson

In "A River Rules My Life," the author told of living at this high country sheep station. She wondered who had lived there before her, especially the women, & set out to find out - taking years of research Now she tells the history of Mt Algidus in an interesting way with personal stories?

Painting to the front of the dust jacket is on the interior of the first Algidus cottage, rear of dust jacket has a map of NZ showing the position of the Mount Algidus Station. Anderson"s second book. In this she looks back at the men and women who first settled the great NZ high-country sheep stations and in particular it is a history of the station on which she and her husband live.

Great high-country sheep stations were a part of New Zealand's history, and here some of that history comes to life from experience and thorough research as Mona Anderson, wondered what led men and women, including themselves, to be drawn to this hard way of life in a beautiful country. It may at first sound typical of many of the great holdings of the back country, yet it leads you step by step to the modern pattern we know today of New Zealand culture, filled as it is with adventure and misadventure, yet bright with hospitality and country camaraderie. She ends it with a charming, modest and humorous account of her own courtship and marriage, and writes with warmth and sincerity.
