As he tells of his day-to-day life in Napierschool, paper round, Scouts, as well as the lasting effects of W...orld War II on his friends and familythe forces of nature are at work, culminating in an event so tragic that it will shock a whole nation. That was, of course, the Tangiwai rail disaster on Christmas Eve 1953, as a result of the Tangiwai bridge being washed away by a lahar from Mt Ruapehu.
