Blood Brothers traces the lives of Steve and Chris Podjursky, two bold and daring Kiwis addicted to the excitement and fear of the adventurous spirit. Not academic, they became high achievers by snatching opportunities that came their way. First ground hunters, hunter pilots, then international pilots, Steve and Chris forged a strong bond through their mutual love of New Zealand native bush and hunting. Not only related by birth, they were also ‘blood brothers’ due to the binding ties of great friendship and loyalty.

But at 3.30 pm on 19 October 1996, in a cruel twist of fate and in the heat of the Sarawak jungles of Malaysia, one of the brothers lost his life. Chris now soared the heavens and Steve the earth. Distraught, Steve had to pick up the pieces of his shattered life and keep on living …


This biography of two hunting brothers, ranging far and wide across New Zealand and beyond, is a well-written, evocative and often startling story. It entertains and intrigues from the beginning.” Norman Bilbrough, award-winning New Zealand author.
