'I suddenly found myself in front of a scene of such beauty that it took my breath away . . .' As a boy in the late 1930s, young Boden's life is changed for ever the day his neighbour Dudley drives him over the mountains into the vast snow-covered plains of the Mackenzie Country. He realises he will never be the same again. Years later, The 20-year-old Boden helps build an alpine hut high up on the western slopes of Mount Cook. Living in snow caves while the hut is built, Boden forms important relationships with members of his working party, most notably with Walter, a conscientious objector from the Second World War. Real historical characters (such as Edmund Hillary and literary editor Charles Brasch) make appearances in the novel. This is powerful new territory for Laurence Fearnley and marks her emergence into the very front rank of New Zealand fiction writing. The Hut Builder is without question her best novel yet, combining her proven story-telling skills with her passionate love of the mountains, The wilderness And The sky. This 2010 Penguin Group New Zealand, Limited Paperback is in Good condition.
