In the Wake of the Axe

Author(s): Peter Newton

Farming General | Don McMillan

This book records a journey Peter Newton made around the stations of the big country of the west and north of the North Island of New Zealand, from Orongorongo in the Wellington district to Te Paki in the far north. Newton writes as a South Island sheep man but he is no stranger. Blended with the history of each station are warm and humerous anecdotes of cooks and cattlemen, wild horses and working dogs. 

A.H. and A.W. Reed, Wellington, 1972. Hardback with dust jacket. Tear in dj but good copy
