Last Shepherd: Anecdotes and Observations from Five Decades in the Wool Industry

Author: Roger Buchanan

isbn: 9780473227876

Last Shepherd is autobiography, wool industry history, analysis of the industry and its politics and plenty of fascinating anecdotes. The author grew up on a sheep farm and ended his career in the wool industry as the final chief executive of the New Zealand Wool Board. He oversaw a wind-down process for the Board that finally ended in 2012. For much of his career Roger Buchanan was involved in overseas promotion and was one of New Zealand's early 'China hands'. Wool was the stalking horse for New Zealand's trade push into China and the author took a leading role in this, over more than 50 visits and many trade negotiations - starting from before China opened up to the Western world. The book vividly describes highs, lows and fascinating incidents from his experiences in China, along with the USA, Japan, South Asia, Russia, UK, Europe and the Middle East.
