Despite its drawbacks of isolation, inclement weather and barrenness, the author doubts if any other New Zealand town of like size had even a fraction of the varied interests which the hill had to offer. Here in a little world apart, was an existance geared to the winning of coal. The author lived at Denniston for twenty years and these memories have inspired recent successful fiction. First edition, this copy signed by the author.
