Ben Rutherford was brought up on a high country sheep station in New Zealand, and brought up the old fashioned way. Here he shares his stories of high country farming, swaggers, station cooks and their eccentric temperament, dog trials, horse racing, pig and deer shooting and other rumbustious elements of the New Zealand way of life…a way of life so rumbustious that a farmer member of the Christchurch Club was once heard to exclaim: “It’s not the rabbits I’m worrying about, it’s the Rutherfords!”
