Author(s): Alan Stevens
When Alan Stevens was a boy in the 1960s, his brother would write him letters describing deer roaming the tops and river flats of Reefton. Without having ever lifted a rifle, Alan caught the hunting bug.
Since then, he has spent many happy (and quite a few unhappy) hours out exploring the bush, tops and back country of the South Island – both on foot and by helicopter – armed with a rifle and very often a camera.
In this book, Alan shares many a tale of life in the bush and the back country, tales which are, in turn, hilarious, exhilarating, frightening and, in some cases, downright inexplicable.
