Now Fiona and her husband Guy are running t...he station and raising their two small children in this wonderful but challenging environment.As the crow flies, Muzzle Station is not too far from Kaikoura. But its not easy to get there. First, the truck and it has to be a truck must make it across the Clarence River. If the river is swollen or in flood, there will be no journey. Once safely across,there are more than 25 smaller river crossings and a 1370-metre-high mountain range to get across. If all goes well it takes three hours to make the drive, but it is often blocked with rockfalls and slips, not to mention snow, or rain that turns the track's clay surface to mud, rendering it completely undriveable. There is another option. On a good day, it's just a 15-minute flight by Cessna 180 fourseater aircraft to Kaikoura. But good days are not always easy to come by in this part of the country, especially when they are needed!This is the story of family life on New Zealands remotest station, and what its like to live and work in what is literally the back of beyond."--Publisher information.
