From the original blurb from the back of the book.

'At the beginning of the 20th Century the Tarrant family were pioneers, making a farm on the steep hills of Taranaki, NZ. They built a hut from ponga trees, felled the bush, burnt it, and sowed grass in the warm ashes. They made a large vegetable garden and built a proper wooden house for themselves. Everyone worked hard, even May, who was just five years old. The only time anyone went to town, out along the rough and muddy track through the bush, was when someone was badly injured.

Ordinary accidents were treated at home. When Claude slashed his leg, using a forbidden axe, Mother had to stitch up the cut using black cotton as he lay yelling on the kitchen table. Later, the daredevil Claude tried to fly from the top of the new house . . . luckily this time he was only bruised. (The boys decided it would be better not to tell Father about this particular accident!)

Every incident in 'No one went to town,' is based on fact. The stories were told to the author (May's daughter) by May, Phil and Claude themselves, from vivid memories of their exciting early lives.

New Zealanders from nine to ninety will be fascinated.'

FUN FACT: Queen Bead now lives in the same valley as May did in the Taranaki hill country!
