Description - It's A Bit Rugged, Mate by Al Lester

Once described as 'Barry Crump meets Fred Dagg', 'Big Al' Lester is the modern-day master of the hunting genre. 'I'm often asked what inspired me to take up writing yarns about the mishaps and mayhem that I have endured while venturing into the New Zealand bush.' 'In truth, I am an average to poor hunter who has had more hunting cock-ups than the rest of the country combined. For every deer I've successfully shot, dozens have escaped only to hide in the bush peering back at me, clearly laughing at my stupidity. I have always managed to see the funny side of the situation and had a good old laugh at myself. I began to wonder if my stuff-ups, with a bit of humour and mayhem thrown in, might just make for good reading - the oddball, unusual, humorous, weird and fun side of hunting - and gave it a go. I must have got something right.' - 'Big Al' Lester It's a Bit Rugged, Mate compiles the biggest and best yarns from Big Al's first three books - plenty of fun for those with a good keen sense of humour and a love for New Zealand's wild outdoors.

Author Biography - Al Lester

'Big Al' Lester was born in Nelson, the second youngest of four children. As a young man, he had played rugby, golf, softball and basketball all at representative level. Despite these achievements, Al got most pleasure from time spent in the mountains and valleys hunting deer and other wild game. Starting out in the banking industry, Al later joined the New Zealand Police. Being a solid 6'4" tall, perhaps he was better suited to the latter role. After doing the hard yards, Al was promoted to his current rank of Detective Sergeant. He is the author of seven collections of yarns. At 53, Al is still an avid hunter with a love of the mountains and a liking for beer. He lives in Christchurch.
