Jack and Charlie: Boys of the Bush
PUBLICATION JULY 2016
The true story of two boys who live on the wild and rugged West Coast of the South Island. Join Jack and Charlie as they go whitebaiting and fishing, panning for gold, chopping wood with their tomahawks, firing at targets with their bows and arrows, plucking ducks, camping in the bush and rafting down rivers. Told by the older brother, Jack (with some help from his dad, Josh James the Kiwi Bushman), Jack and Charlie: Boys of the Bush is sure to become a New Zealand family classic.
Winner of the 2017 Elsie Locke Award for Non Fiction at the NZ Book Awards for Childrens & Young Adults.
