About

An account of high country sheep farming in a remote and isolated area of the South Island. She tells of harsh winters, of self-reliance, education in the back-blocks and anecdotes about station life and its personalities. Terri MacNicol and her husband spent many years on the Mount Aurum Sheep Station in the NZ South Island High Country. Mount Aurum station is at the end of the Skippers Road, an old goal-mining road built late in the 19th Century. It still exists, as does the old Mount Aurum homestead - now a historic building and one which I visited a few years ago. It's a hair-raising drive in, albeit incredibly spectacular. It's a remote area, and forty to fifty years ago it was even more so.
