Horncastle's Hero or Hell Raiser
Author: Graeme Horncastle
isbn: 9780473317867

The Horncastle family is prominent in the New Zealand business world, but their ancestors are far less well known. This new book explores the life of Charlie Jacobsen, grandfather and great-grandfather of generations of Horncastles who, often from humble beginnings, have achieved success in many fields including building, hospitality, fishing, retail, property management and advertising. "Old Charlie" Jacobsen led an extraordinary life of adventure and mayhem - gold miner, fisherman and launchmaster in the remote French Pass and Marlborough Sounds, and the first in New Zealand to discover uranium, in 1955. He had the proverbial nine lives and used up most of them. Spanning the 1880s to the 1960s, this book provides a snapshot of life in New Zealand and an often hilarious background to one of New Zealand's most interesting families.
