Paperback | English
Joshua and Mary Rankin are a courageous pioneering couple who arrive from England to the reality of a harsh and isolated life in New Zealand. They chance their arm almost against the odds, assisted by loyal friends they make as their community grows. They go on to nurture a timber felling and saw milling industry that sees neighbouring enterprises thrive, especially thanks to investment in horse management for essential transportation, haulage and even an infant racing industry. Hard work realises dreams, with families such as the Rankins and its next generation of entrepreneurs giving a lead.
