Summary:"As a young teacher graduate, Brian Pearson and his family move to North Westland. He becomes the sole teacher in a small sawmilling settlement in the remote valley just west of the main divide known as the Kopara. Teaching a dvierse group of children, he too finds himself the student as he learns to become part of the burgeoning community. In his book, Brian also explores the historical struggle of the pioneer settlers in this region of Westland. In particular he examines their fight to be recognised by central government as a functioning community in order to gain basic amenities such as roads and power."--Publisher description.
