From the valleys of Te Urewera to the hinterlands of the South Island, and across to the red, dusty lands of Australia, these stories weave through a landscape of adventure and amusement, populated by larger-than-life characters. These were men and women who lived whole-heartedly their back-country existence and were ready to jump into life at any moment, boots and all. Within the chapters of this book – from the hilarious “I’m Shot” to the poignant “Epitaph to a Friend” – a tale unfolds; a record of one man’s hunting adventures and encounters with some real but unusual people in the remoter parts of New Zealand. Boots ’n’ All is a compelling read that continues in the footsteps of the popular first book by author Tony Walsh, The Black Singlet Brigade
Author Tony Walsh was born in Preston, England, and moved to New Zealand with his family at the age of 13 in 1952. As a young man teaching in country schools around New Zealand he developed a great love for the bush, for hunting and fishing, and for the curious characters that fill the isolated corners of this country with adventure. Now retired with his loving wife at Waimana, near the beautiful Urewera ranges, he spends his days fishing, entertaining the grandchildren, reminiscing, and writing.
