Description

This unique record of one man's life reveals him to be a highly enterprising and determined person. Although he does not claim 'any earth-shattering achievements', the story of his very individual and varied life makes for absorbing reading. He has a great deal to tell. He starts with a brief history of his parents, followed by an account of his own school days during the Second World War. As a young adult his stint in the Merchant Navy takes him to foreign climes but ill-health forces him to rethink his future. He does not, however, lose his thirst for adventure, and together with his wife, emigrates to Australia. The author has a remarkable talent for remembering people and events. Place names, work duties, dates - all are recalled seemingly without effort. He also describes his unending quest for new projects and experiences, from fire fighting to mastering the use of a computer. Photographs throughout the book complement his anecdotes beautifully. It is a privilege to share in this man's personal journey through life which is recounted with such a pleasing mix of warmth, humour and candour.
