Come Be a Pioneer – In Times of Old Cape Runaway
Sketches by Baith Kemp
From the cover –
Back in pioneering times three boys, Jock, Andrew and Pip were born to Tunny and Lorna Hindmarsh of Potikura. This was an isolated sheep and cattle station on the sea coast near Cape Runaway . After the Great Slump the family moved 20 miles inland to Pakira, where the parents remained for the rest of their working lives. In 1950 Jock became manager of nearby Matarau and married Juliet Bush of similar farming stock. In 1972 they, with their family, moved closer to Gisborne to farm Waerenga-o-Kuri. In retirement Jock was prevailed upon to record the fast-disappearing memories of New Zealand ‘s most far-flung farming outpost.
