About the Author

The writer was born in Germany. Too young to be drafted he experienced W.W.II as a boy, never missing any air raids just outside Berlin. By the time of the Allied victory, he and his capitalist family found themselves in what was to become the "Democratic Republic" from which they all escaped in 1947. A colourful career develops, ranging from mining, railroading, oceanography and university studies to teaching, farming and logging. These phases are interrupted by a three year stint as an educational advisor in Africa, travels in Mexico, Belize and two Atlantic crossings in his own boat. Off and on he visits Berlin, where he finishes his teaching career as an exchangee. He now lives with his wife and family in Victoria, B.C., Canada.
