What Are You Doing Out Here (ISBN 978-0473-16331-0)
Heroism and Distress at a Cricket Test
Norman Harris - 2010
What are you doing out here (New Zealand RRP $24.99 plus postage) tells the story of how "two events, continents apart and spread over three days, merged into a moment of profound drama which has echoed through time in New Zealand. They were a cricket Test in South Africa and the railway disaster at Tangiwai [Christmas Eve 1953] which claimed 151 lives including the fiancee of a New Zealand player. The rip-tide of emotion that was unleashed gave rise to a legend, now preserved for posterity by a skilled writer who has meticulously recreated the drama." (96 pp, illustrated.)
The book is also available in Australia from Melbourne bookseller, Roger Page, 10 Ekari Court, Yallambie, Victoria 3085.
