This highly readable book describes some of the experiences, amusing and otherwise, of a district nurse in a remote and quite unique corner of New Zealand. The time was about thirty years ago -- the 1940s -- and the district concerned lay just south of the Hokianga Harbour, Northland, with the Waiopoua Forest cutting it off from places further south. This was within the area presided over by Dr George McCall Smith, the redoubtable, unconventional "backblocks doctor", writer and medical pioneer, then nearing the end of his long period of devoted service to the Hokianga.
