Return to Open Country by Jim Henderson

People and Places Out of town
Open Country is something built into the fibre of every good New Zealanderder, wherever he or she may be. It's the land of the Delectable Mountains,
of crisp little townships and of snug villages, of farms which grow good human beings as well as crops and pastures.

"Open Country" is the title too of Jim Henderson's weekly radio programme where a host of speakers, drawn from every corner of both Islands, tell tall tales and modest ones of what this country means to them. They offer high drama and homespun humour as they look back on.the men and women, the dogs and stock, the high adventures and the lovely, fleeting moments of childhood they have known.

In 1965 Reeds published the first Open Country collection; it was reprinted in 1966 and again in 1967, and this' entirely new book, Return to Open Country, presents the same generous harvest of 'the best of the best radio programme'.

In this book we meet old friends again, and make new ones, and can savour the work of the new artist, David Cowie who, like Jim Henderson, knows and loves New Zealand's open country and its people and their ways. In this book are many joys. We share with its contributors the experiences they relate; and, their stories
are a passport and a free ticket to what all good New Zealanders desire: a Return to Open Country.''
