Starting in the ‘50s, this light-hearted memoir tracks a young Canadian’s trials and transitions through young adulthood. When family collapse during adolescence necessitated initiative, the author followed his yearning for travel and discovery, with stories of stints in the Navy, the wilderness, college in Scotland and sailing the seven seas.
This story is of formative years, the angst of adolescence and a quest for adventure inspired by the sights and sounds of ships and boats in Vancouver harbour in the 50s/60s. Written in the luxury of hindsight, the tales embody touching as well as silly observations on life and loves.
