Abstract

This is a lovely story by Samantha Faulkner – a tribute to her grandfather, the sprightly and life-loving 90 year old, Ali Drummond. It is a book of which he and his family should be immensely proud. As a family history it is more than good, however its impact to a broader audience is lessened by some inherent problems, detailed later.
