The Kopara. As a young teacher graduate, Brian Pearson becomes the sole teacher in a small sawmilling settlement in the remote valley known as the Kopara. Teaching a diverse group of children, he too finds himself the student as he learns to become part of the burgeoning community.In his book, Brian also explores the historical struggle of the pioneer settlers in this regionof Westland. In particular he examines their fight to be recognised by central government as a functioning community in order to gain basic amenities such as roads and power.Extensively researched, Brian shares the stories of many colourful characters and amusing, extraordinary anecdotes.In his foreward, Sir Tim Wallis commented that Brian...”has truly captured the spirit and character of West Coasters as I knew them.”.“It is with pleasure I offer my father's book for sale in my bookshop. While not a motor book as such those with an interest in sawmilling and pioneer farming in Westland will find it of great interest.” Dale Pearson, owner of DML Manuals and Motor Books; 7 1/2 x 10 inches; 386 pages
