Carry on : a biography of John Wilson

Author(s): Michael Kelly


... This is no ordinary biography.  It is a twofold story.  It is the story of a man who was far from ordinary; and interwoven with it is the story of a marriage partnership of 61 years and of the family life that grew from it.  It is important that a story such as this be told, for it tells much of the strength and depth of the human spirit, of courage and endurance, of determination and dedication, and of comradeship, love and laughter.  It is the story of a particularly well rounded man. .... taken from Foreword by Sir Michael Hardie Boys
