As It Was – The Life & Adventures of a Murchison Boy
Paperback | English
Growing up in Murchison I was always more interested in the great outdoors than in school, which I left at 14 years of age to work on my uncle’s farm. I enjoyed hunting with my mates and spent a lot of time in the backcountry.
Being selected to join the New Zealand Forest Service as a Government Deerculler and a Headman led to my career with National Parks of New Zealand, initially as the Second Ranger in Nelson Lakes National Park in 1965. Subsequently I spent three years in Westland National Park and twelve years in Fiordland National Park.
