Hot off the press: Pumiceland Pioneers May 24, 2011

Posted by Andrew Killick (Publishing Manager) in 5. News.

Pumiceland Pioneers was a labour of love for author Doug Martin. The book tells the story of how the Martin family broke in a farm on New Zealand’s volcanic plateau, and about their descendants’ involvement with the land. At one level this book is a family history, but it is also a unique and interesting insight into farming life and a very valuable addition to New Zealand’s recorded social history.

This was a book project driven by Doug’s passion for his subject and the farming life, given the trademark Castle professional touch. Illustrated throughout with historical photographs. This will be of interest to people in the Rotorua area, but more widely to those who are interested in how New Zealand was developed and farmed.

This is the second book about a farming family that Castle has been involved with in the last few months – the other being Good God – the Goodalls! (more info about that one here)
