As a boy in the early 1940s, Boden Black’s life is changed the day he first sees the vast snow-covered plains of the Mackenzie Country. He discovers a love of landscape and a fascination with words, and forges a career in poetry, while dutifully keeping up the family butchery. Boden’s joyous summer, building a hut on the slopes of Aoraki/Mount Cook, gives the book its title.

Laurence Fearnley is the author of eight novels, and her writing has been acknowledged with awards, fellowships and residences.

She lives in Dunedin with her husband and son.
