The Drover’s Quest: Published By Brocker Books

NZD $23.00

“Tell us where you’ve got the nugget and this will go well for you,” the tall man with the horrible voice rasped.

Rumour is flying around the West Coast goldfields that Tom McGee has struck it rich and found a nugget of gold as big as a man’s fist. So no one is surprised when his campsite is later found wrecked and abandoned. Men have been killed for a lot less on the tough goldfields of 1860s New Zealand.

But one person is convinced Tom is not dead – his headstrong daughter, Charlotte. Solving the mystery is not her first task, though. First, she must get to the coast. A skilful horse rider, she disguises herself as a boy and joins a cattle drive across the Southern Alps. But Charlie is in for the ride of her life — and the stakes couldn’t be higher.

The Drovers Quest explores relationships between people and animals, and gives an insightful look at the motivations that drive people to go to extraordinary lengths to accomplish something that really matters to them. The historical setting is gritty and authentic, and the cast of strongly drawn characters, many with dubious motives and agendas, make this a compelling read.
