            Tall tales of New Zealand bushmen, tradies and back-country rouges Mike Bellamy's father Barry is as tough as they come.

Tough Country is a book about a father by a son, about a bygone era of bushmen, scrub-cutters, hunters and shepherds. It's also a book about the author's own life working the land, and the characters of the 80s and 90s, from tradies and digger-drivers to drain-layers and wharfies.
