Once described as 'Barry Crump meets Fred Dagg', 'Big Al' Lester is the modern-day master of the hunting genre. Mad Men of the Mountains - Al's seventh collection of yarns - is another rollicking ride through New Zealand's wild outdoors, a countryside he so obviously loves. Armed with his rucksack, a rifle and a keen sense of humour, Al and his mates encounter all manner of beasts that got in the way and many a curly situation to test their mettle. Plenty of off-the-wall adventure for the hunting mad and hard case!
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.
