Description


Graeme Mackie proves that the art of telling a good Kiwi yarn isn't dead. We follow the lives of Rolly and his mate Jim as they are hired and fired by a variety of hard-case bosses after some spectacular mishaps. They find an injured dog and learn by trial and error how to hunt pigs in the bush, surviving some tense encounters with wild boars that are none too keen on ending up as a roast dinner. But it's down at the pub that the stories really fly, fuelled by plenty of the amber nectar, as real blokes out-do each other's yarns about fishing, hunting, and the ones that got away. These stories of Rolly's early life are smoothly told, with a craftsman's eye for detail and a wicked sense of humour.

About the Author


He was born and raised in South Auckland where his greatest enjoyment was fishing on the Manukau harbour with his Dad. His other major interest was the deep-throated roar of diesels, and he would cycle for miles to watch earth-moving machinery in action, dreaming of the day when he'd be behind the controls himself.
