Open Country is something built into the fibre of every good New Zealander, wherever he or she may be.  It’s the land of the Delectable Mountains, of crisp little townships and of snug villages, of farms which grow good human beings as well as crops and pastures.
“Open Country” is the title too of Jim Henderson’s weekly radio programme where a host of speakers, drawn from every corner of both Islands, tell tall tales and modest ones of what this country means to them.  They offer high drama and homespun humour as they look back on the men and women, the dogs and stock, the high adventures and the lovely, fleeting moments of childhood they have known.”
