Brian Turner's name is synonymous with Central Otago - albeit a different Central - one well removed from the tourist centres and vineyards.
His Central is at the boundaries; watching the local rugby teams, fishing the waters of the Manuherikia, cycling towards the snow-covered Hawkdun Range. It's where he and his neighbours live and work.
The author is a devout fisherman, cyclist and passionate ambassador for the great outdoors.
Boundaries is peppered with impressions, evocations and recollections of the way life was, and is today. All set within the spectacular hills, rivers and big skies of Central Otago.
This handsome collection is charged with evocative and candid prose and poetry and an inspiring alternative vision. Boundaries is illustrated throughout with stunning photographs by Steve Calveley.
