With contributions from over 70 different individuals of their memories and anecdotes of Dick Morris. "Although this book is dedicated to the memory of a genuine New Zealand 'character', Dick Morris, and is loosely based around his life as a deer culler and naturalist - and broadcaster - in the rugged Lewis Pass area of the South Island High Country, it has ended up rather different [. . .] It is in fact the 'oral history' of a particular segment of New Zealand life, straddling the years of the Second World War - roughly from 1930 to 1960. It tells of a way of life which, under the impact of modern technology, has largely gone. Improved roading, 4-wheel-drive vehicles, modern radio communication, and in particular helicopters, have seen to that. It was a hard life, but with elements of romance, even heroism." "Dick was a man of some spirit when it came to dealing with the skin buyers [. . .] When the truck was loaded, the buyer brought out his cheque book. At this point he declared that he was going to deduct some two or three pounds for the weight of the rope [. . .]" - page 24. Seller Inventory # 18836
