Waugh Stories

Brothers Alec and Richard Waugh reminisce in Waugh Stories about 1960s Hokitika – the time of the town’s centennial and the Haast highway opening. Evocative and true stories – sometimes humorous, always informative, and occasionally sad – tell of the characters, sports, environment, architecture, weather, transport, and other events of the time.

They demonstrate why Hokitika, situated by sea, river and mountains, is one of the most fascinating small towns in New Zealand. In their later careers Alec and Richard became nationally prominent in diverse spheres of police, church, aviation and community service.

For Hokitika’s 150th anniversary they combine their memories, research and insights in a well-illustrated book of compelling social history and darn good West Coast yarns.
