NO ORDINARY GOAT

THE STORY OF NEW ZEALANDíS ARAPAWA GOATS

Alison Sutherland (organizer of the New Zealand Arapawa Goats Association) has published a book on our Arapawa Goats. For years there has been some controversy as to when their ancestors first came to New Zealand and this book is the result of four years of comprehensive research into their origin and history.

In a foreword to the book, Michael Willis of the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve has noted –
“Alison takes us on a journey that is not only extremely readable and fascinating in its content, but it also gives an historical insight into part of our nationís early history. Years of research has enabled Alison to systematically paint a verbal picture, bringing all the elements together in a way that has never been done before. This is an extremely enjoyable book to read, and an incredibly valuable documentation of a little known animal that has helped shape our country and identity.”

Printed in New Zealand, No Ordinary Goat, The Story of New Zealand’s Arapawa Goats, is a large (255 x 175 millimetres), soft cover book of 224 pages, with over 50 illustrations in colour.
