Description - Cape Country by Diana Morrow

The inspiring story of seven generations of Gordons at Clifton, Cape Kidnappers.

The Gordon family has been at Clifton since 1861. Though farming in this location is often challenging, it is a spectacularly beautiful environment, situated on the east coast of the North Island, just 20 minutes' drive south of Napier.

The story of Clifton is a story of a family's deep love and connection to that land and their determination to hand it on intact and thriving to succeeding generations. Six generations of Gordons have enjoyed living there, and the seventh has just been born. Each generation has had a deep attachment to this land both through times of prosperity and success, and through struggles, droughts, floods, and economic downturns. Each has successfully maintained and improved the property to hand onto the next generation.
