Fond Yarns & Tales of Woe
Paperback | English
“I often wish, when I know someone who’s had a rich and interesting life that they would write down some of the precious stories for posterity. Most don’t. Luckily, Jack Elphick has.
This book is an enjoyable journey with Jack into the English countryside when he was evacuated as a child during WWII, in his 20s hitch-hiking and sleeping out in the Australian outback, heading off to help in the struggles of the people of Central America, sailing against French nuclear tests at Moruroa and tramping through forests with a helicopter overhead while helping to end native forest logging on the West Coast.
