Searing Heat - A New Zealand High Country Tale

Searing Heat is a tale about New Zealand High Countrry living. Baxter is caught out mustering sheep in a wildfire. Can the station folk rescue him in time? What part will Tui and Soft Billy play in the rescue and will i9t all happen before the Southerly Buster arrive with rain to swell the river? A quick read on your Kindle.

Based on my experiences living on a New Zealand sheep station in the mid-late 60s, the tale illustrates how when the going gets tough the tough get going; how neighbour helps neighbour; and that the tough exterior has nothing to do with the feelings of comradeship in high country life.
