This is the story of a Scots/Irish adventurer who chose to spend 40 years of his life in South Africa, a land which he describes as the 'Wild South'. His propensity for living life on the edge, a trait which he demonstrated early on in life, was well realised through a kaleidoscope of perilous escapades including a goring by a buffalo, two near drownings in racing wild rivers, incarceration in a gaol in Mugabe's repressive Zimbabwe, and a turbulent life style in the dangerous, gritty mining town of Johannesburg. A review of the book has likened the author's writing style to Hemingway in his capacity to involve the reader in a fast, action driven journey through life.
