The High Country Stations of the Mackenzie
By: Mary Hobbs

Condition: BRAND NEW

To most New Zealanders, wherever they live between Auckland and Bluff, the Mackenzie Country remains one of those heartland places that contributes much to our sense of self, with its vast expanses of tussock and sheep, glacial lakes, huge skies and the Southern Alps rising up to the west. But the reputation of the Mackenzie also owes much to the courageous, tough and tenacious people who first settled the high country stations of this area and who continue to farm to this day. In The High Country Stations of the Mackenzie, longtime resident of the Mackenzie Country, Mary Hobbs, tells the story of 11 stations, mostly from around the Lake Pukaki area, which include such legendary runs as Irishman Creek, Mount Cook, Braemar, Tasman Downs, Ben Ohau and Glentanner. In unravelling the history of these stations, Mary has talked to all of the current station-owners to document their contemporary stories, while also uncovering many lost historical tales. Heavily illustrated with both contemporary images from all over this landscapes, and many old, often previously unseen photographs, this is a captivating and fascinating book.
Full of stories of courage and determination, tragedy and hardship, but also humour and triumph, this is a heartland book from a long New Zealand tradition of writing about the high country.
