Boots ‘N’ All continues on from The Black Singlet Brigade, these stories weave through the New Zealand and Australian landscape with humour, adventure and local characters.

Out of stock


From the valleys of Te Urewera to the hinterlands of the South Island and across to the dusty lands of Australia these stories weave through a landscape of adventure and amusement populated by larger than life characters. These men and women who lived whole heartedly their back country experiences were ready to jump into life at any moment “boots and all “.

Within the chapters of this book – from the hilarious “I’m Shot” to the poignant “Epitaph to a Friend” – a tale unfolds, a record of one man’s hunting adventures with some real but unusual people in the remoter parts of New Zealand.

“Boots n All” is a compelling read that continues in the footsteps of the popular first book by author Tony Walsh, – “The Black Singlet Brigade”.

  1. Margaret C.

    Boots ‘n All is a collection of anecdotes largely from Walsh’s hunting days. It follows his first book, The Black Singlet. Its major appeal over most books, and a fact I very much enjoyed myself, is that you can read the chapters of the book in any order as each chapter is a short story in itself. It is not a requirement to have read The Black Singlet first.

    Boots particularly appeals to me as I am a tramper, but I think anyone who enjoyed the “Good on ya’ mate” advertisements from TV would like it. The rough and rugged outdoorsy type who makes a wonderfully romantic gesture, (but possibly biggest faux pas of his life), by courting his wife-to-be by inviting her on a hunting trip. My favourite line in the whole book relates to this story, “Noreen never did love hunting like she loved me.”
    Boots ‘n All is an easy read, playful and full of humour.
