This is a history of the Glens of Tekoa, a New Zealand sheep station that has been owned by the same family for over one hundred years.  It also includes glimpses of life on several other stations in the Amuri district, particularly during the late Nineteenth Century.  The story begins in 1850 when William McRae arrives at Nelson with his wife and children.  A few years later he finds the land for which he has always searched. Here he decides to build a heritage for his children.  And the names he gives to the hills are to be a reminder to his descendants that their roots are deep in old Scotland.

This copy is an unumbered copy of a limited run of 400.
