The hills are full of hard-case characters who are out there simply being themselves. The mountains have a habit of bringing out the best in people, despite the hardships of rain, hail and snow that are often thrown in. In fact, it's only after a bit of adversity comes your way that a person's true character come to the force. Those with a love for the hills take these things on the chin and just get on with enjoying it. 'I've been fortunate over the years to have met a bunch of really good 'bastards'. All of them had a sense of humour, a liking for a beer and a willingness to lend a hand whenever one was needed. This book is about their adventures as much as it is about mine.' Following on from the success of his two previous books, Hunting in the Raw (2003) and A Bum in the Bush (2004), 'Big Al' once again takes us on a tour of the rugged New Zealand outback in search of all manner of unsuspecting game - with varying degrees of success! With A Hard Shot in the Hills, Al and his mates share these hunting tales and many a good yarn, all told with great humour and an endless sense of adventure.

About the Author

'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.
