The Laugavegur is one of the big walks. It is the most famous trek in Iceland and crosses other worldly landscapes formed by recent volcanos. I did it from north to south and it runs over 80km from... More > Landmannalauger via Thorsmork to Skogar on the coast. The trail is normally open from late June to mid-August. I started on the 15 June, the first day the bus ran to Landmannalaugar. I hadn’t booked the huts as I didn’t know whether I’d make it. So I took camping gear. The scenery is sensational and unlike anywhere I’d been before. At this time of the year there is still a lot of snow. I was alone much of the time, having started early in the year. There were three river crossings in flood and I needed to strip and take care. You pass through vivid rhyolite mountains, climb snow slopes, cross ash deserts, rift canyons and glacial streams. There are wild flowers, sweet birch and the cries of redshank and ptarmigan. I did the trek from Landmannalaugar to Skogar in 4 days including the bus trips at either end.< Less

Birdville School opened in 1922 on the corner of two dirt roads at the edge of a fallow farm. Over the next 67 years it witnessed, and influenced, the unfolding story of the town that grew up around... More > it, amid flood, brushfire, blizzard, tornado, and earthquake; poverty and prosperity; war, peace, and cold war; and even the collapse of the earth beneath it. It hosted PTA meetings, plays, movies, concerts, basketball tournaments, holiday parties, Scout meetings, polio vaccination clinics, and war-time rationing registrations and scrap-collection drives. Local sand-lot softball, baseball, and football teams competed in the same surrounding fields that swarmed with gleeful children at recess, and that echoed with the roar of low-flying aircrafts snagging mailbags on their tail hooks. By the time classes concluded for the last time in 1989, thousands of children had benefited from the care, instruction, and example of the Birdville School family. This book is a feeble tribute to those who made us who we are.< Less

More > her? Separated from my father and my native Canada we spent the entire war, eleven years in all, in Germany.

Returning to Canada proved no better, as my father too abandoned me. Part One covers the first twenty-eight years of my life, including a teen marriage and subsequent service in the Catholic Church. Part Two relates my deepening commitment to the church and to God as I understood him. An amazingly candid portrayal of a life lived on two continents and in two worlds, the secular and the religious, and how abuse and betrayal sometimes happen to good people.< Less
