I have the greatest admiration for your ability to get through it all whilst in the grip of so much physical pain. It is trying to deal with people in that sort of environment but to attempt to control your desire to just lay down and try to sleep to escape the severe discomforts you experienced reveals just how strong your character can be.
I felt relieved in the end that there was a measure of peace and a settling down to a life that would have to give you the reward of a kind of happiness that you so deserved. It all made a whale of a story and I am glad to have had the opportunity to read it and know you and the way you dealt with the cards you had to play in that game. Well done Graham. I look forward to reading more of your life adventures.
I did know from Graham Whittaker's interviews that he was going to be an engaging and interesting writer. I had no idea I would be shaken to the core with his story. This book gives an insight into the highs and lows of a survival lifestyle in the untamed areas of New South Wales in Australia.
This book for me was a fast page turner but one where I needed to digest each section because each portion is rich in emotion. There was one section that cut me to the heart and that one I had to nurse for days. This is a book you want to keep to revisit, one where the players are indeed real and become part of your world because you are drawn deeply into Whittaker's world.
Graham invited the reader to be his friend, his companion. So as you read this book, you are also being his companion in remembering various parts of his life. Some of his anecdotes were sad, some funny, some poignant. When reading and joining the dots to other anecdotes regarding the same people and or events.
One of the things that really resonated to me was the area of a part of his life. Centred around the mid north coast of New South Wales the stories came alive for me as I imagined every incident, every event and the people around this area of bushland. The difference between living in the bush and being a townie also resonated with me.
Well written and easy to read, I highly recommend it to anyone who came from a different era, a time when life seemed freer and less constraints.
