In this collection, you will encounter adventure and spirituality, wisdom and
wit, as well as insights which are both practical and philosophical. Cam
Mervyn-Jones was raised in colonial India, served as an RAF Wing Commander in
World War II, and lived as a family man in Australia. His varied life and broad
reading have enabled him to pass on spiritual wisdom and the practical lessons
that helped him navigate the challenges and contradictions we all face. He also
recounts some of his adventures, which range from ditching his plane in the
Adriatic to meeting Mae West in New York and the Queen Mother in London. Like a
ripe bunch of grapes, Camchatta allows the reader to sample just one of his
experiences at a time or the entire bunch.
