            In 2001, Adam Henson was chosen from 3,500 applicants to become a presenter on Countryfile. Adam's agricultural knowledge and open manner soon made him a popular figure and when the programme moved to its current Sunday evening slot in 2009, he began to present a weekly report fr...om his own farm in the Cotswold. There, the ups and downs of the farming calendar, as told in Adam's straight-talking fashion, soon became one of the most popular parts of the programme as viewers watched him endure the stress of TB testing and his sadness at losing valuable cattle as well as the highs of spring lambing. Adam has also pioneered diversification in his business, loaning his rare breed collection to period films such as Emma and Braveheart, rescuing threatened breeds of sheep, developing spring barley for a heritage brewery and welcoming visitors to his Farm Park. This is the first book by Adam Henson, and it is an enthralling, first-person account of the drama, emotion and sheer hard work that is life on Adam's Farm.

            "A colourful account of the men and women, past and present, who have committed their lives to shearing in New Zealand. Their voices - in their own words, often brutally honest reflections on what it is to be a shearer - are at the heart of this book: their training, their tools,... their camaraderie, and the gruelling, itinerant nature of the job. Old hands like Brian Snow Quinn, Tony Dobbs and Peter Casserly, and Peter and Elsie Lyon, as well as those newer to the scene, offer personal insights, often for the first time"--Publisher information.

            Many know New Zealand's High Country for its beautiful scenery u the snow-cloaked mountains, braided rivers and tussock grasslands, shaped by millions of years of natural events and centuries of exploration and settlement by both Maori and Europeans. With its rich human heritage ...and mythology, the ever-changing High Country is central to the country's psyche and identity. Yet few have experienced the day-to-day life of the men, women, and children who live in these remote regions. Regions where high tech farming methods are used alongside tools an early settler would recognise, where animals play a central role, where hours are long and income can be short, and where everyday livelihoods are at the mercy of the weather. Photographer Antonia Steeg began her work documenting the High Country in 2008, when she was invited to attend the last muster at historic Mesopotamia Station. This quickly expanded into a massive four-year project capturing the land, its people and their way of life through the changing seasons. In her work Antonia has driven over 120,000 kilometres by 4-wheel-drive, seen parts of the country few will ever reach, experienced wild extremes of weather and made more than 100 station visits, meeting and working alongside the modern day pioneers who live there. Of the tens of thousands of high quality photographs she has taken, three hundred of the very best are distilled into this, her first full-length book.
