But, in truth, have cities shaped our present more than we care to admit, given that since 1911 more of us have lived in cities than in the country? Historian Ben Schrader, author of 2017 Ockham New Zealand Book Award shortlisted Big Smoke, and journalist Gordon McLauchlan, author of Great Tales from Rural New Zealand and The Farming of New Zealand amongst other titles, fine-tune town and country mythologies with Jim Mora.
