West to the Annie

£24.99

Product description

"West to the Annie" will be an invaluable reference book for what is a very impressive area of Hawke's Bay's heartland, New Zealand.
A very good to fine copy which includes genealogy tables, maps and a good number of colour and black and white photographs,
This book is about the land between the two rivers, the Ngaruroro and the Tutaekuri, a widespread and clearly defined area that begins at Fernhill and stretches as far as the Kaweka Ranges.
The book firstly examines the diverse and spectacular natural history of its many land forms and then brings its rich and colourful Maori heritage to life giving us insights into how and why the area was settled. Pioneer stories abound as we see how the old coach roads are opened up and a rugged and at times unforgiving country becomes populated. There are eight chapters on the family blocks which began as vast sheep stations and are still proud farms today.
Education, the effects of the war years and The Depression, Sport and Recreation are also highlighted with many warm-hearted and telling reminiscences.
The eighteen chapters by thirteen different authors are delivered with sensitivity and good humour and in a way that the excitement and respect for the past are always paramount.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
