The Heart of the Parapara & Field’s Track
By Ross Annabell with Marion Donald

This book is the story of the settlement of a valley and a community on State Highway 4, Wanganui-Raetihi, and its centre exit Field's Track, from the late 1800s. It provides a rich and fascinating account of how this notorious road came into being and of the people who bravely settled in the area, their holdings, their social activities and their children's schools.
