Forgotten Years: Helicopters and Hunting Stories
Forgotten Years: Helicopters and Hunting Stories

New Zealand's early backcountry heritage is encapsulated among the recollections of the men who pioneered the West Coast's early venison recovery days. Accounts of competing helicopters lined up ready for a dawn takeoff in Makarora, hundreds of deer flanking tussock basins, and the hardy men and door-less helicopters ready to take charge.

Brian Conroy's long awaited second book follows on from his first Helicopters and Venison and covers the 1962-75 period, before Graham Stewart & Co. set up and up until about the time the live capture of deer boomed. There are hundreds of photos, which speak for themselves and over 40 accounts, word for word from the men of the day, some funny, some poignant and many tragic. Many years of research and interviewing makes for enthralling reading and by no doubt ensure these years are never to be forgotten.
