Family and Love

Front Cover
Strategic Book Publishing, Nov 1, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 121 pages
Originally written in 1969, when he was twenty-four, Paul's book initially describes his early years in Bristol, England, a brief torrid equatorial experience, and subsequent immigration by ship to Canada in 1953. Numerous challenges and adaptations spring from this major uprooting. We share them through Paul's interesting and descriptive record of growing up in the fifties and sixties, initially in rural Alberta, followed by later childhood and adolescent experiences in a small town on the Ottawa River, west of Montreal. Next comes life in Montreal during the sixties, with all the social, cultural, and musical changes. As Paul's story goes along life's road, he fills it with many unique, clearly creative descriptions of Nature during all seasons. Challenges, like a negative father-son relationship, are more than balanced by bonding with a best-friend's family, time and escapades with other friends, and young early-parenthood. Available in soft-cover bulk orders, 100 copies minimum.
