Classic New Zealand history of the West Coast's Kopara village and Haupiri Valley region. Written by school teacher Brian Pearson as a recollection of his years during the 1970s in the valley, teaching during the day and otherwise hunting, fishing and learning the local ropes. Brian artfully tells the district's early history as given to him from the locals. This is a must-read for anybody who has hunted or explored this beautiful West Coast valley or hunted and fished in Lake Haupiri or the Ahaura and Haupiri Rivers.
