Klappentext

John Hill's autobiography makes for riveting reading. Covering the first eighty years of his life he paints a vivid picture of the 'lost' 1930s, his childhood during the Second World War, then his family's migration to South Africa. His working life is a wonderful adventure story, beginning with working as a deckhand on a whaling factory ship in the Antarctic before starting his career as a geologist in the colonies of the British Empire and later in Russia, Australasia and South America. He tells of the fascinating places and people he has worked with, including life as an expatriate family, a Royal visit and a series of thrilling adventures and mishaps in unpredictable situations.
The account of John's life is interwoven with world events, the effects of empire building and the wars and conflagrations that affected mankind throughout the twentieth century.
