About the Book

I have written this book so late in my life because I just did not know enough and perhaps still do not, as you may perceive by my queries and controversial statements throughout. My wish is that this book will be affordable for all young people who could benefit from my experience and advice, thus helping them to cope with the most bewildering, hostile, and unnatural environment that this planet has ever endured. It covers subjects from geology, including earthquakes and volcanoes, to financial and political problems that have had a great influence on the world, and the impacts that nature has had on our lives.

About the Author

I was born in 1917 to English parents who had settled in the village of Taradale, on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. This was an English colony in the Pacific Ocean. The district was completely rural, with many small fairy farms, orchards, vineyards, and Chinese market gardeners. Such an environment resulted in my future being strongly attached to the soil and nature.
