An autobiography that has it all. The real story being his adventure in making a dream a reality, though one filled with challenges and obstacles that brought laughter, joy, tears, heartache, violence, and betrayal. An amazing adventure by a man that just didn't know the word 'too hard' or 'give up.'
The author skims over the early years that lead to the real story, carving a water sport focused resort, out of the jungle on a south pacific island.
The support from the local government has evaporated and now left to his own resources and stubborn will power to deal with the local village and their chiefly system. Promises broken, violence and intimidation quickly follow.....let's get the white guy. Let's see how much money we can get out of him before we drive him away! Surrounded by men wielding rocks or razor sharp machetes, being attacked in his office to riding huge powerful waves to catching marlin and swimming with sharks the author was never going to say life was dull let alone normal.
Was his life an adventure there is no doubt, but was this really paradise!
