A scion of William the Conquerer's trusted companion, Old Etonian ex-Irish Guards officer Brian Gilbart-Denham has seen active service against the Mau Mau in Kenya, rioters in Aden, and revolutionaries in Cyprus. He has toured Argentina and Brazil cricketing, run his own delicatessen near Harrods, dealt with property in London and Greece, hot air ballooned over the desert, and travelled extensively and ruggedly to the most exotic corners of the world. Brian became involved with and sailed the Tall Ships, served as a Middle East mercenary, has worked as a North Sea oil rig roustabout, and in his seventies climbed Mount Everest base camp. He then almost scaled Mont Blanc, but deterred by bad weather that day, settled for nipping across to 'do' the Italian Dolomites instead. Brian has only recently completed trekking the Annapurna Circuit - all of this, and much more, is re-told in this amazing book. Brian's account of his eclectic and exciting life will stir the blood of all young-at-heart oldsters, and hopefully inspire a few youngsters to get up and go, too.
