Weeping Waters

Did you see the awesome film last night on Tangiwai? Despite the fact that I had very heavy eyes (will let you know the reason why for that later in the week), I stayed riveted through the whole thing, and may even have shed a tear at the end. This wasn't guy gets girl and everyone lives happily ever after stuff. This was New Zealand history, our people, our country, our pain and our triumph.

The tale told last night is recounted in book form in What are you doing out here : heroism and distress at a cricket test / Norman Harris ; with a foreword by Bob Blair.
