I'm ninety-five... Any objection? Folk History from the South Island
by Christine Hunt

Card cover, first edition 1985, good condition

When the author set out on South Island, New Zealand, to recapture the memories of survivors of the generation born in the late 1800s, she unearthed an intricate tapestry of facts and feeling and home-grown philosophy, shrewd perception and tomfoolery and fantasy and faith: the essence of folk history.

In this book men and women of an almost bygone era speak frankly and with humour of their lives and times "Yes, and all those blooming personal bits and pieces" that breathe life into history. They describe what its like to be near the end of their lives and physically failing, how it felt to live in New Zealand at the turn of the century and what they think of the world today. Above all, they spoke before it was too late, offering us a rare opportunity to share their responses to living and their memories of a past that is all too easily forgotten.
