About

Mona Anderson and her popular books made the high country life famous and accessible to many. This 1963 book traces her life and the history of Mount Algidus Station way up the Wilberforce and Rakaia rivers in the 1930’s.

As a young bride, she was first taken to Algidus across the Wilberforce River by draught horses. The idiom “Crossing the Rubicon means to pass a point of no return and refers to Julius Caesars' army's crossing of the river in 49 BC, in what was considered an act of insurrection. Young Mona called the Wilberforce her Rubicon. She married having never visited where her husband Ron worked, and knew she couldn’t leave even if she hated it: there was a river in the way. Fortunately she loved it: descriptions of station life, the seasons, the characters and the hardships are all in this book. as well as some photographs.

Illustrated throughout with monochrome photos.
