With this third and final volume of Memoirs, author Harry Furniss winds up ahumorous and off-beat reverie of his adventurous life and times over the past 80 years.
In volume one, The Flying Game, Furniss vividly recreated perilous moments of wartime flying with the RCAF and his capture by the Germans. And, after a lapse of 40 years, the thrill of flying again as a civilian where he contrasted the old and the new of this most exciting profession.
In volume two, Sea Fever, Furniss waxed nostalgic about his hobby of building and cruising pleasure boats on the rugged coast of British Columbia for more than 40 years.
In this final volume, Family & Friends, Furniss offers intimate profiles of some of the fascinating people he has met along the pathways of life, and reflects on his own varied achievements.
The author now lives in contented retirement with his wife Enid on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
