He was followed eight months later by his young fiancée, Marian, who left behind a Scottish winter for an unusual wedding and safari honeymoon, camping in the African bush. They started married life in a remote but beautiful place, in the very north of the country. This is the story of their dramatic and sometimes dangerous years, adapting to life in Africa, getting to know the Africans, enduring basic living conditions and later political unrest among the local African population.

They overcame the isolation, travelling to find friends in their bumpy, overworked Land Rover. The adventures of Marian and Gordon in Africa, happy and otherwise, were well documented in regular letters to family in Scotland. These were kept by Gordons mother and reading them fifty years later, they realised they had a wonderful story to tell.They now look forward to a second book, about adjusting to Canadian winters after leaving the heat of Africa.

Tentatively titled “Out of the Frying Pan into the Freezer” it is due to be published late 2012.
