This book, first published in 1951, is something of a classic in New Zealand. The author was an early woman pioneer, whose brother was the Supreme Court Judge Sir Hubert Ostler. Helen Wilson was a strong woman, largely raised by her mother, who had been widowed at just 28. She and her mother bought a farm out of Levin, and broke it in, living from a basic shelter and gradually developing a proper home. She was an early figure in Womens Division Federated Farmers. This fluently written tale is a fascinating account of early New Zealand.
