'The Gentle Giants' is a step back in time to summer 1938 with a 20-strong team of working bullocks in the native bush (forest) in the far north of New Zealand. The author describes the workings of the bullock team, bringing both the men and their team of amazing beasts - the gentle giants - vividly to life as they remove trees from the forest for timber milling. The book also provides a wealth of information on New Zealand flora, birds and pre WWII bush lore. The book is illustrated with the author's photos and sketches. Having spent his boyhood among the bushmen and events that he describes in 'The Gentle Giants' Gordon McKenzie is in the unique position of being the only person still alive in New Zealand to have witnessed this bygone age.
