About the Book

What seemed like a remote and fruitless yearning for a young lad to raise and fulfil his innate calling became a reality through a set of strange and seemingly fictional circumstances —for truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. Purely accidental and only the workings of the three fates have caused him to acquire proper schooling, to become a school teacher and headmaster (ag.) of DeHoop Canadian Mission School, his alma mater—to enter into teachers’ college –to do research work in the Certificate in Education and the Bachelor Of Education in Mona, Jamaica, and later to complete the Bachelor of Arts, in the University of Toronto…great achievements for one who never crossed the door of a High School in Guyana. For he was not only a school teacher in Guyana and Jamaica but went on to retire honorably from the teaching profession in Scarborough, Ontario, 1993. This book reveals that persevering strength of the human spirit to swim ponds, creeks, rivers and marshes; to saunter through valleys and downs; to brave thickets and thorns; to ascend hills and mountains and to reach the apex of the Will’s longing. Such is the true story of Imperishable Memories!
