'Those of you with a sense of humour, a love of hunting and a liking for yarns about the characters that roam the New Zealand mountains, this book is for you.' With Off the Track, 'Big Al' once again revisits his beloved terrain- yarns of off-road New Zealand. With his characteristic humour and love for the land - and larrikin mates firmly by his side - Al recounts numerous trials and tribulations from recent hunting expeditions, including such things as cooking dinner with a flame thrower, knocking off plenty of pig and deer (and plenty more making a lucky escape), rats in lunchboxes, accidentally blowing up bridges, snow avalanches, a suicidal Canadian goose, and a burial at sea!

About Al Lester

'Big Al' Lester was born in Nelson, the second youngest of four children. As a young man, he had played rugby, golf, softball and basketball all at representative level. Despite these achievements, Al got most pleasure from time spent in the mountains and valleys hunting deer and other wild game. Starting out in the banking industry, Al later joined the New Zealand Police. Being a solid 6'4" tall, perhaps he was better suited to the latter role. After doing the hard yards, Al was promoted to his current rank of Detective Sergeant. He is the author of seven collections of yarns. At 53, Al is still an avid hunter with a love of the mountains and a liking for beer. He lives in Christchurch.
