The Mt Pisa Station Story - A Stroke of Luck, by Nicola McCloy, will be launched at Cromwell Paper Plus on Friday, October 7 from 5.30pm. Established in 1858, Mt Pisa Station was one of the largest landholdings in Central Otago. The current owners, the MacMillan family, have been on the station since 1924. It is a tale of boom and bust, gold and water, drought and rabbits, and of a changing agricultural world. It is also the story of the MacMillan family and their connection to this iconic piece of land.
