Goodness Gracious Me Pioneering Stories From Five NZers
By Valerie Cowan

GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME is a highly readable collection of stories from the lives of five remarkable "ordinary" New Zealanders - three men and two women whose lives span most of last century.

GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME brims with yarns and anecdotes, recreating the tough and demanding life which was lived on farms and backblocks in many parts of the country in the earlier years.

Here are men and women who literally turned their hands to anything and everything, who relied on themselves and picked themselves up and tried again after knockbacks - with humour, courage and downright Kiwi ingenuity. From desperate adventures of life and death backblocks medicine to the reminders of everyday life with none of today's amenities, here is "New Zealand as she was", sharplu and lovingly remembered.
