In February 1961 Jim Henderson launched a radio programme called 'Open Country', and for four years it has been bringing the New Zealand countryside and its life right into New Zealand's suburban houses. Here are the memories of New Zealanders who write simply and for the fun of it, not for fees and rewards. They look back on the days they remember: the family comedies, the local eccentrics, the taste of butter fresh from the hand-churn. The horses and hot shingle of the deep bush. The hard times of the Depression, and the careless joys of New Zealand childhood. These are real people, writing of what they know and love. Jim Henderson.

Illustrated throughout with monochrome line drawings.

Maps on end papers.
