Thirteen Formative Years

EDUCATION – Saxonwold Primary School: … for about four years, from about the age of nine to 13, I was determined I was going to be a game-ranger. Harry Wolhuter’s Memories of a Game-Ranger was one of my favourite books. Both Stuart and I were thrilled by the stories Wolhuter told in it, particularly how he killed a lion with his sheath-knife after it had attacked him and was dragging him along the ground.
