A record of one man’s hunting adventures and encounters with some real but unusual people in the remote parts of New Zealand.

From the valleys of Te Urewera to the hinterlands of the South Island, and across to the red, dusty lands of Australia, there are stories that weave through a landscape of adventure and amusement, populated by larger-than-life characters. These were the men and women who lived whole-heartedly their back-country existence and were ready to jump into life at any moment, boots and all.

From the Bay of Plenty to the southern West Coast of the South Island, “Boots 'n' All” (published by Xlibris NZ) written by author Tony Walsh provides readers with a series of exciting exploits in the backcountry of New Zealand. Within the chapters of this book – from the hilarious “I’m Shot” to the poignant “Epitaph to a Friend” – a tale unfolds; a record of one man’s hunting adventures and encounters with some real but unusual people in the remote parts of New Zealand. Evoking his feeling for people and the natural environment, it takes readers to a way of life most can only experience second hand.

Often humorous, occasionally emotionally touching, “Boots ’n’ All” is a compelling read that continues in the footsteps of the popular first book by author Walsh, “The Black Singlet Brigade.”
