Robert Long and his family live in complete isolation, in a hut two days' walk south of Haast in South Westland. Robert has lived there for nearly 30 years; Catherine for 20 and the kids all their lives. Their only contact with the outside world is a helicopter or plane once a month, and two trips a year to the 'outside world'.
This is the story of how and why Robert came to live at Gorge River, and the family's experiences there over the years, living self-sufficiently. It is an inspiring tale of one man's decision to establish a lifestyle most New Zealanders can't even imagine.
Illustrated with b&w and colour photos.
