George and Mary, Late Pioneers
By Ken Marshall

This is the story of those early years of hardship which my parents went through and of the early lives of my brothers, my sister and myself. Secondly it relates to our move onto a further farm on the Whanganui River and the "Marshall" farming there and then on throughout my generation and into the next when one of my sons takes over where I leave off.

The title I give to this book does of course refer to those first years of real hardship that my parents went through. Us children too of course, but we four never knew any other life at that time so it worried us not at all. The success of the farming adventure or its failure has little to do with the "human" story of the hardships of true New Zealand pioneers and to what those hardships ultimately led. Written by the son of George and Mary Marshall who lived with them to the end of their days, this story is told first hand.
