The Boundary Riders follows the journey of a range of infamous characters whose names largely unknown in our history, reveal stories that would slip easily into any Wild West Adventure Book.

From prostitutes to missionary wives, goldminers to magicians, these beguiling tales of conquests, survival, persistence, and the merging of peoples and cultures from far distant lands have all given birth to New Zealand as we know her today.

The historic trail began over two years ago when armed with a grant from Creative NZ Rachel embarked on 40 day solo tour across the country performing, collecting and digging up stories of women in 1800’s NZ.

A second further collection tested her own boundaries as she cycled the length of NZ from Cape Reinga to Bluff with only a ukulele, a one person tent to her name and 2000km to travel. With many stories shared on the road, and a final concert in Christchurch marking the end of the long journey Rachel finally came off the saddle and began the long process of collating and sorting the research till each character’s story fully appeared & provided the starting point for each of the songs.
