Publisher Description

This rattling good yarn has now been made into a major movie- Hunt For the Wilderpeople, directed and written by Taika Waititi, and starring Sam Neill and Julian Dennison.

When Social Welfare threatens to put Ricky into care, the overweight Maori boy and cantankerous Uncle Hec flee into the remote and rugged Ureweras. The impassable bush serves up perilous adventures, forcing the pair of misfits to use all their skills to survive hunger, wild pigs and the vagaries of the weather. Worse still are the authorities, determined to bring Ricky and Uncle Hec to justice. But despite the difficulties of life on the run, a bond of trust and love blossoms between the world-weary man and his withdrawn side-kick.

Review

"A good simple yarn." --Dominion "A rattling good yarn . . . an almost unbelievable tale made believable by its raw earthiness as Crump displays his bush lore." --Sunday Star "Nicely crafted." --NZ Herald "Wild Pork and Watercress was a novel that I couldn't put down . . . It definitely will not disappoint." --Waiuku & Districts Post
