This book covers the latter years the author spent as a New Zealand Forest Service Ranger in North West Nelson, his interest in flying and how the arrival of the meat-hunters and their helicopter influenced his daily routine. Then a change to forestry and the stresses of the job relieved with family hunts - with Murphy always in close attendance. Told with humour and a deep affection for the people places and events he describes. This book is filled with a wide variety of stories from numerous hunting trips both on the job and off, as well as anecdotes from every day life as a forest ranger and forestry officer. Inevitably Murphy has the last word.
