About the Book

This book and its stories bring forth the life and conditions experienced by these local people who seldom, if ever, move outside their land, within which multinationals travel and disrupt their fragile life systems. This only changes when the infringers interact with the local populations. There are and always will be those who do see the insecurities of life through these areas and locations and enable people to function slightly above their meagre existence whilst living desperately far below the poverty level.

About the Author

Since his childhood, the author has taken part in numerous facets of life, volunteering for the merchant navy and sailing throughout the Far East and Australia, before volunteering in the Royal Air Force as a radio operator on air-sea rescue bases, which is where he became involved in the military throughout the Suez Crisis. After these episodes, he spent seventeen years in chemical manufacturing and the oil and gas industries, before taking on the life of an expat oil and gas worker, ending as an advisor and consultant. He spent the next forty-three years travelling the world whilst expanding his knowledge. Throughout these times, he became very competent within these industries, to the extent that he resolved production problems and numerous dangerous happenings. Specifically, he dealt with a 500,000-bbl (barrels) floating roof tank fire, successfully extinguishing it without the loss of production, whilst always considering the local communities and populations.
