It details the raw side of living in Verdun a French English community. It tells of his misadventures as well as his schooling and education. The battles and stories are all true as he can remember. It also goes into detail of his dealing with death from a young age till the death of his parents.

It also goes into detail re his adventures in fishing the St. Lawrence River as well as Lake St Francis. He did experience what it was like to become a commercial fisherman as well as how to sneak a dead body across the USA border back in 1956.

He explains his efforts to further his education and the difficulties of securing his first real job. Also included is his fighting spirit which is demonstrated over and over again.

The reason he decided to write this autobiography is to leave a history of his life for the future generations of Halkett’s. This is his first attempt at writing and he believes the second book will be much better constructed. Enjoy the read.
