traces the story of New Zealand’s wool industry from inauspicious
beginnings in 1779, when Captain Cook landed a pair of sheep that
lived only two days, through colonial farm development, shearing,
research & development, the ‘wool trade’, farmer politics,
grower levies, market support schemes and statutory wool
organisations, to wool products and their promotion in New Zealand
and overseas. Great to read and great to look at.

the wool industry's part in New Zealand's development has been
recognised, in a first-class book." (Graeme Hunt, National Business
