An adventure story with a difference. Join the author on his travels through Asia, Africa, India and elsewhere as he finds a path of sorts on an intense and humourously told search for his meaning to life. From driving a VW Beetle through Africa to a Rolls-Royce limousine in Beverly Hills, from photographic safari guide on foot in Zambia to authoring three linguistic dictionaries, from internal security fiascos in Hong Kong during the Cultural Revolution to the solitude of four years as an itinerant Hindu monk. The author recounts his life of a series of welcome accidents with a thread of revolt and determination to make sense of life which, of course, can only be found beyond the material manifestation, in places of unsuspected simplicity.

Every boy needs a hero to look up to, a mentor to help him along his way. I had Major Wight and Monte to guide me though my teenage years. And somewhere along the route, I acquired those same traits in my own life. In this book, I relate dozens of real-life experiences that took me from a Tenderfoot Scout to receiving by Silver Beaver Award as a scout leader.<br /><br />Along the way, I served as a Junior AssistantScoutmaster while in high school. I was privileged to serve as a Scoutmaster in three different units, as well as a varsity coach and a post advisor. I worked with boys from eleven years of age until many of the received their Eagle rank. I also earned my Eagle at the age of sixteen, and numerous other scouting and religious Awards.<br /><br />In Everything I Need for Life, I Learned as a Scout, I relate true experiences as a young scout all the way through many overnighters and scout camps to training a patrol of adult scout on how to make their troop the best it could be. Please join me for the ride as I grow from a young twelve-year-old Tenderfoot to a seasoned leader of youth.

I was privileged to live in a time and place of my own choosing.This is very special to me. Even if I were a youth today, many of the stories related in this book could not happen again. I hope each of you enjoy the experiences as I relate them. Maybe they will spark an interest or a desire to experience nature as I was able to in Wyoming's Best Kept Secret.

In Hunting and Fishing Bloopers, I relate to the humorous side of life in the outdoors as can happen to anyone. Maybe by reading these episodes, you will be able to avoid some of your own bloopers, if nothing else is accomplished. Both of us can have a good laugh at my expense. I hope you enjoy every one of them as I did. Remember to laugh at yourself along the way.

The book is Zou's life story and all the adventures that go with living in a developing country. She arrived in 1939 in what was the Belgian Congo and lived for 16 years in various places from schools to farm to business. It was very rudimentary and due to the war many facilities were not available and ingenuity was obligatory. They were more involved with the Congolese primitive way of life than is normal for South African citizens’ relationship to black people, but there was a natural apartheid due more to customs and habits than to law and their social lives never intertwined.<br /><br />She had three step fathers and had a very significant relationship with each of them. They each thought her different skills and help shape her into who she is today. <br /><br />On the emotional side, she lost her fiance at age seventeen just before their marriage and this had a profound effect on her. Nevertheless, along the way she had 3 husbands (one illegal) and lived intensely through it all. Her “career” was also very independent and acquired haphazardly without any studies and/or qualifications just chutzpah.<br /><br />She now live frustratingly without a real motive feeling she has so much more to offer, but to be a great-granny knitting quietly in a corner when she still would want to set the world on fire (but I’m running out of matches!)<br /><br />
