Edge Message #6 from Brian Sweeney, producer NZEDGE.COM
Hello from The New Zealand Edge.
Today we publish the extraordinary story of Godfrey Bowen, the shearer with “the race of Nureyev shaping an arabesque”; a man of the land credited with influencing world economics; feted by Johnny Carson, awarded by the Queen and honoured by Khruschev at the Kremlin. This is also a story about the New Zealand farmers, shepherds and shearers who have become known throughout the world for their skill and toughness.
Also today a new picture gallery Edge attitudes are all around us, here are some visual stories.
Thanks for the ongoing registrations and commentaries, which we will publish in a week or two.
