Author(s): Richard Steele
An engrossing, easy-paced novella of murder and intrigue, told in authentic rural style with all the colour of life in rugged bush country. Also includes three true stories.
Richard Steele has farmed all his life, and in some wild parts of New Zealand. He now owns and runs a 1500-hectare sheep and cattle station at Retaruke in the upper Whanganui River area, an hour or so from Taumarunui. Ghosts on the Valley, his first book, is closely based on real-life experiences (except for the murder aspect, which is pure fiction).
