In a Strange Garden : The Life and Times of Truby King
Sir Truby King has touched the lives of most New Zealanders as founder of the Plunket movement but there was a lot more to this man - a life of failed business ventures and fluctuating fortunes; of innovative farming and holistic healing. He was also a passionate gardener, a scientist and a farmer - Lloyd Chapman brings to life this fascinatingly flawed man with sympathy, humour and frankness.
