Description of this Book

The true story of two boys who live on the wild and rugged West Coast of the South Island.

Join Jack and Charlie as they go whitebaiting and fishing, panning for gold, chopping wood with their tomahawks, firing at targets with their bows and arrows, plucking ducks, camping in the bush and rafting down rivers.

Told by the older brother, Jack (with some help from his dad, Josh James the Kiwi Bushman), Jack and Charlie: Boys of the Bush is sure to become a New Zealand family classic.

Author's Bio

Jack Marcotte - who was nine at the time of writing his book with his father - is the older brother of Charlie and son of Josh Marcotte, commonly known as the Kiwi Bushman. They live on the rugged West Coast of New Zealand's South Island. Josh grew up in Napier and the Ruapehu region and has worked in shearing, forestry and rafting in Canada and New Zealand. These days he spends as much time fishing and hunting as he can, also guiding and trapping possums. He owns and operates a white-water rafting company specialising in wilderness expedition trips.
