Sam is employed by the Department of Conservation (DoC). His two mates are helping out. Their task is to clear out as many feral pigs as they can in the Tongariro National Park, which is located in the North Island of New Zealand. There are three major volcanoes within this park, so the culling of the pigs has to be done with great care as there are an abundant amount of thermal pools, mud pools and, of course, volcanoes. In the high country of New Zealand, the weather can be very fickle, going from warm to cold within minutes. The three friends draw even closer as they get caught up in a weather pattern with a difference. Mist, sulphur and rain envelop them and propel them back to the start of the New Zealand Wars of 1863. Three modern blokes, with all the paraphernalia of the 21st century, running around in the past, confused, lost, and trying to stay out of harm's way, once they realise where they are. Will they get home? Will they change history?

"A thrilling read. I enjoyed this book immensely. The fast moving plot, slipping back into the lads past and trying to stay safe. The characters are believable, and it has given me an inside on New Zealand's history. If you want a superb read, that has an adventure, timeslip, war, romance, bush, history, then this is for you. Even though this is a work of fiction, the author has brought together certain aspects of the 1860's that happened. I could not put the book down; I felt as though I was there with them. My wife enjoyed it as much as I did, so it is not a gender book, it is for everyone. Recommend it for 14 years to old folks."
