Memories of Dick Morris and the Deer Cullers

Although this book is dedicated to the memory of a genuine New Zealand `character; Dick Morris, and is loosely based around his life as a deer culler and naturalist - and broadcaster - in the rugged Lewis Pass area of the South Island High Country, it has ended up rather different from the compilation of people's memories of this remarkable and lovable man that I originally set out to write.

It is in fact the `oral history' of a particular segment of New Zealand life, straddling the years of the Second World War - roughly from 1930 to 1960. It tells of a way of life which, under the impact of modern technology, has largely gone. Improved roading, 4-wheel-drive vehicles, modern radio communication, and in particular helicopters, have seen to that. It was a hard life, but with elements of romance, even heroism. It still lives vividly in the memories of the diminishing number of people who lived it, and in the recollections of those who, like me, saw something of it before it disappeared.
