    A huge amount of time and consideration has gone into the content of this book. It is a man telling his story in his own words, recognising the people and places while recounting the experiences and his feelings along the way. It may not be in line for an award for the greatest piece of literature, but if you have a background and interests that align with Johnny then I’m sure you will enjoy his ‘ramblings’. As his daughter I can say the content will be a memory for today, for my children tomorrow and for generations of family to come. Thank you.
