McGinty Musters ‘Erewhon’
Paperback | English
McGinty Musters ‘Erewhon’ is an account of the happenings and experiences of a down country lad who talks himself into a mustering role on the well known high country Canterbury sheep station ‘Erewhon’. With no knowledge of mustering, and not even knowing how to work dogs, just with enthusiasm and the ability to talk his way into and out of things, McGinty stumbles and learns as he goes. This delightful book is about the people of the high country, their lives, their humour, their work and their wonderful ability to accept people and to help those around them. It is about the joys and disappointments, the mistakes and the triumphs, the frustrations and the pleasures of Tony Robinson (McGinty) as he struggles to master the demands of mustering on the very steep slopes of ‘Erewhon’.
This book is written of the mustering days of the early 1960s, now a part of history, as the mustering is no longer done by six men on foot, it is now done by helicopter.
