A lot of information. Each chapter represents a decade, divided between the UK and the US, broken into sections including daily life, work, politics and sex. So many set backs!

Terry Pratchett
“Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett, Jingo

John Muir
“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
John Muir
