AuthorHouse, Sep 19, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 104 pages
From horses and outhouses, meager living conditions and child labour, to expense accounts, world travel, and boozing, to a shock that ended all that and started something new. Stewart found his way through life sustained by a determination to succeed and a dry sense of humor. The gift of story-telling isn't something to be learned; it is just there, And the stories he tells are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, but always entertaining.

About the author (2011)

Born in the United Kingdom, Stewart W. McCaw has gone on a unique journey that only he could travel. From childhood through adolescent pranks and serious work, such as apprentice hairdressing, mucking out stables, and learning blacksmithing to adulthood. Stewart spent his mid-life working in management for American and German companiesin the computer industry, which took him on travelling adventures. This gave him skills to be able to manage pubs. Now, in his retirement years, Stewart has begun learning new skills: computer proficiency. Now he is emailing and blogging with the best of them. Then he caught the writing bug and, by delving into his family history and meeting new relatives over the internet, he has decided to compile some of his life experiences. Stewart has published articles in The Financial Times and Internet Genealogy and is presently working on a book of short stories. He lives in England, but hopes to get back into the swing of work and travelling again and, of course, writing about his experiences.
