Beschreibungen

Country folk have their own way of doing things and their own sense of humour too. They are naturally wary of men in suits and university types, and such people have to be put to the test before they can be accepted. They are not too keen on new-fangled ways of doing things either; a meal of mountain oysters is one thing, but washed down with a glass of bull's semen? What's the world coming to?
'Once Upon A Cowpat' is a hugely enjoyable collection of rural yarns, with subjects ranging from the Hokitika Wildfoods Festival, country rugby and encounters with farm machinery, to uppity animals, time in the pub and Mystery Creek. The stories are peopled with a diverse collection of oddball farming types, tough hunter-gatherers, ten-acre blockers and wet-behind-the-ears farm workers. They frequently find themselves in some pretty hair-raising and sometimes downright hilarious predicaments. Tall tales or gospel truth? Well, Graham Hutchins has met some real characters in his time, but he is also a master story-teller, so you'll have to make up your own mind on that one. One thing's for sure though: this is a book that men and women of all ages will enjoy, whether in gumboots or fireside slippers.
Graham Hutchins is a prolific and popular author on a range of subjects, including rugby, cricket, popular music and railways. His books for Exisle include' Last Train to Paradise', 'Great New Zealand Railway Journeys' and 'Eight Days a Week'.
