Mesopotamia Station - 20th Apr 2017

Mesopotamia Station A Fabled Land: The Story of Canterbury's Famous Mesopotamia Station
by Bruce Ansley with Peter Bush

This book covers 150 years of station life at the legendary Mesopotamia Station, which lies in the Rangitata high country. Think about the Southern Alps, torrential rivers, bluffs, gullies, isolated huts, camps, merinos, musters, packhorses, and the indispensable dogs and you will start to get an idea of the treat in store in Bruce Ansley's book.

The superb photographs are provided by Peter Bush, who took them over a 40-year period. He captures the beauty and the isolation and brings to life the characters who have lived and worked on Mesopotamia both now and then.

The Station was founded by Samuel Butler (as you probably know) so once you've read Bruce Ansley's book, you can move on to Erewhon and Erewhon revisited. Or maybe read them first and save this treat for afterwards.
