Mary and Charlie purchased a farm on the banks of Lake Pukaki where they built a home with a focus on using as much in the way of toxic-free products as possible.
It was an exhausting job. A book on it will eventually be written about that journey. They found that there is a difference living in a toxic-free home and that what people call a green building is not necessarily so.

2015

In 2015, Potton & Burton published Mary’s sixth book, High Country Stations of the Mackenzie, which features the history of most of the high country stations surrounding Lake Pukaki. Almost all of the contemporary photos in the book were taken by the author. The book became a best-seller.

2017

In November 2017, Potton & Burton published Mary’s seventh book, High Country Stations of Lake Tekapo, featuring the history of the high country stations surrounding Lake Tekapo. Most of the contemporary photos in the book were taken by the author.
