In 1854 Laurence Kennaway and three hired hands drove a mob of sheep from the Hurunui River, at that time the boundary between Canterbury and Nelson, to Alford Station in mid-Canterbury. In his memoir Kennaway described the 25-day trip in great detail. His sketch shows one of the group’s camps. In driving rain the men had to take turns keeping watch through the night.
