About the Book

Cornelius has travelled widely and has written an account of his journeys with his family through Europe by campervan in “The Gypsy Life”. As a Shakespeare enthusiast he has compiled “Shakespeare’s Lines”, and both books have been published by Partridge Publishing. He is a glider pilot and engineer, and was privileged to crew on a yacht in the Mediterranean. This current book describes his ‘animal’ interests and flying/sailing experiences. The essays are topical, thought provoking and even, perhaps, provocative He and his adult daughter are fortunate to reside in a well wooded stand which encourages wild monkeys and mongooses to visit. They are also subservient to two cats.
