A Good Keen Girl
A Good Keen Girl
Crump, Barry

Published by AH & AW Reed, Wellington, 1970, 155 pages. Front end paper has been ripped out, leaving tear marks on the adjacent inside cover, numbers '1197' in biro on inside title page, small tears at top and bottom of dustjacket spine, and at right of front cover. Covered in plastic to protect.

'A good keen girl, that's what you need.' said Bert Shambles to Kersey Hooper, who was breaking in the desolate Blackrange Station without benefit of a matrimonial helpmate. They'd all had a go at the Blackrange - every organisation from the East Coast Acclimatisation Society to the Wairapakau-North Ladies' Tatting Enthusiasts' Guild. None of them had made any headway. But Kersey Hooper did in his own special way and in his own time. He could handle dogs; he could handle stock; he could handle Blackrange. But could he handle the good keen girl whom he brought home as the MIstress of Blackrange Station?
