About the Book
This is the third volume of my memoirs. The first volume described my rootin', tootin', shootin' youth, and the second volume detailed some of my creative output, in particular containing hundreds of photographs of earthquake damage in Christchurch, New Zealand where I live. The third volume is an extension of the second volume as regards the ongoing covergage of the earthquake disaster, and a fourth volume is in preparation. All volumes have art related matters, and some of my musical compositions are included.
