Station Country: Back-country life in New Zealand
By Philip Holden

In Station Country, popular rural chronicler Philip Holden explores the heart of New Zealand. Visiting some of the country's largest but not always best known high-country stations, he encounters much of the vitality that characterises New Zealand back country life, with its gallery of colourful and distinctive personalities, and its relatively short but fascinating history that tells of keen enterprise, frustration, loneliness, comradeship, tragedy, titanic endeavour, and indomitable spirit. It is a world and a lifestyle of total commitment.

Written in the author's engaging weather-beaten, home-grown style and illustrated with his own colour photographs, Station Country identifies Philip Holden's warm and close affinity with his subject. Station Country is fascinating reading for all those with an interest in the unique rural life of New Zealand.
