This book is a collection of personal stories ranging from humorous to inspirational. It begins with the author’s youth in Saskatchewan, Canada, moves through an assortment of universities in Canada and the United States, and ends with his eventual career in education in Manitoba.

In the Portage la Prairie School Division he held a variety of positions such as teacher, counselor, Special Education Coordinator, and Consultant for the Gifted & Talented for the Portage School Division.

He spent time in Moosonee, on the tip of James Bay, doing upper ozone atmospheric research for the International Geophysical Year in 1958.

The author’s interest in computers began when they were IBM vacuum-tube mainframe machines, and continued through the development of Commodore, Radio Shack, and Apple personal computers. He was actively involved with developing computer-assisted education including their use with the handicapped.

There are numerous photographs illustrating the author’s experiences, as well as several photos by Kev Millikin because they illustrate the book’s theme in an impressively artistic way.
