Books Info:

High Country Woman free pdf A special book about a unique New Zealand high-country farmer and her historic sheep station. New Zealand's high country farmers are a special breed. They farm in tough terrain, at high altitudes, in areas where extreme climate puts both man and animal to the test. When she was widowed, with three children, in 1992 Iris Scott had to call on all her farming skill and inner strength to carry on as the runholder of the 150-year-old, 18,000-hectare Rees Valley Station at the head of Lake Wakatipu, near Glenorchy. Not only that, she had to run the station on her own and keep up her veterinary practice. High Country Woman is the engaging story of Iris Scott's love of our high country and her determination to farm it successfully while upholding high conservation and land-guardianship values. The book also covers the fascinating history of the area long known to locals as The Head of the Lake, the focus of William Rees' great sheep run, established not long after he and Nicolas von Tunzelman became two of the earliest Europeans to travel into the area in an epic exploration feat in 1860.

About Iris Scott

Iris Scott is one of the first New Zealand women to graduate from the Massey University veterinary science degree. She moved to Rees Valley Station in 1971 when she married Graeme Scott, son of the then runholders Doug and Jean Scott. She is a member of the Otago Conservation Board and a passionate advocate of the high country way of life.
