This is an auction for CLOUD FARM: HIGH ON BANKS PENINSULA, by Jane Chetwynd.

"Escaping the rat-race and moving to a sanctuary in the country: it's the dream of many New Zealanders, but how many of us actually follow that dream, let alone write about it? Jane Chetwynd left behind her latte lifestyle, and gave up the status and money of her job as a professor at the Christchurch School of Medicine, when she fell in love with a farm on Banks Peninsula. Without quite knowing why, she began idly scanning the newspaper ads for livestock, then the Farms for Sale column. Gradually her fantasies became real, and she bought a 66ha farm above Akaroa, with 20ha of covenanted native bush, gorse galore, panoramic sea views, and a derelict farmhouse with no running water, power, or bathroom. Chetwynd's ever-helpful friend Dee dubs it Cloud Farm because, at 610m above sea level, it is frequently enveloped in cloud."
