The hills are full of hard-case characters who are out there simply being themselves. The mountains have a habit of bringing out the best in people, despite the hardships of rain, hail and snow that are often thrown in. In fact, it's only after a bit of adversity comes your way that a person's true character come to the force. Those with a love for the hills take these things on the chin and just get on with enjoying it. 'I've been fortunate over the years to have met a bunch of really good 'bastards'. All of them had a sense of humour, a liking for a beer and a willingness to lend a hand whenever one was needed. This book is about their adventures as much as it is about mine.' Following on from the success of his two previous books, Hunting in the Raw (2003) and A Bum in the Bush (2004), 'Big Al' once again takes us on a tour of the rugged New Zealand outback in search of all manner of unsuspecting game - with varying degrees of success! With A Hard Shot in the Hills, Al and his mates share these hunting tales and many a good yarn, all told with great humour and an endless sense of adventure.
