No Ordinary Goat | by Alison Sutherland

Having stumbled on the story of New Zealand’s Arapawa goats and learning they were close to extinction, Alison Sutherland acquired a breeding pair. Her passion for the unique little goats motivated her to research their history. What she uncovered provides strong evidence the Arapawa goats are descendants of the now critically endangered Old English breed, given to the people of New Zealand by Captain James Cook.

    Alison takes us on a journey that is not only extremely readable and fascinating in its content, but it also gives an historical insight into part of our nation’s early history. Years of research has enabled Alison to systematically paint a verbal picture, bringing all the elements together in a way that has never been done before. This is an extremely enjoyable book to read, and an incredibly valuable documentation of a little known animal that has helped shape our country and identity.
