FRONTIER – REVISED EDITION
 
 
“Frontier – the Battle for the North Island”
 
Peter Maxwell’s controversial book about the New Zealand War campaigns of the 1860s tells a story few New Zealanders really understand, and has now been reprinted a third time. “Frontier” threads these complex events into their direct chronological sequence, traces the campaigns on the ground, and unlike the politically correct accounts approved off by the academics, treats both Maori and European fighting men with respect.
 
The latest 384 page revised edition is on sale now, and contains additional maps and illustrations not found in the two earlier editions.

Kaweka Ranges: Studholme, Kiwi Saddle & Kiwi Mouth

27th – 30th January 2017 Even the best laid plans can fall though and unfortunately that is what happened with our Thunderbolt/Rangitikei trip.

Nik reviews Savage Arms’ latest hunting rifle... Lightweight rifles are all the rage these days – most hunters are looking at ways to reduce the amount of weight they carry. A kilo here or there can make a measurable difference to how your body copes on an extended trip, or even a day hunt. When it comes to rifle weight this kilo can equa... read more

Kaimanawa & Kaweka Ranges: Oamaru, Tussock and Boyd Hut

22nd – 25th July 2015 I have to admit to being pretty excited when the time came to head away for this trip. The Oamaru has special meaning to me, it’s where my sika-hunting career really began and each time I walk up the steps to the hut I am reminded of some of my most memorable trips. To sweeten the deal, I decided to head further in a... read more

Reloading Ramblings

Rob Bedingfield tinkers with loads... Just when I thought that all my rifles had carefully worked up loads that could not be improved on, I started to think that maybe they could be optimized just a little further. This is possibly because of my impending retirement and the thought of having nothing to do except housework. Choosing the optim... read more
