The Tears of Harry Wakatipu

Author(s): Jack Lasenby

Young Adult Fiction

Harry Wakatipu returns to the Hopuruahine Hut, and his dogs to walk on water, slays the first of the Grim Inscrutable Wolves, and lives all winter on a single moa's egg.
What happens when the flying dunny lands in the river-bed, when Harry Wakatipu ferments con-densed milk...
Tuck this book under your swanny and listen and laugh to the muscular music of the Vast Untrodden Ureweras.
A story of the classic days of deer culling when men were supermen, and weren't allowed to even dream of girls, let alone hide a copy of Anne of Green Gables in the foot of their sleeping bag.

Jack Lasenby at his best, and Harry Wakatipu at his worst. First published 2006.
