About this title

Synopsis:

Virginia May grew up in post WW-II England, raised by a single mother. Unable to pay for travel abroad, she went to work in Switzerland to learn about a wider world she did not know. This book describes that sixties trip, a transforming experience which she wrote about ten years later.

The book chronicles her day to day life in an isolated mountain community, working sixteen hours a day with a multinational staff.

Virginia went on to study History at the University in London, had a media career in newspapers and TV, married and then emigrated with her husband, mother and children to Calgary, Canada in the 70's. In Calgary she returned to University to study law, and chose to practice as a barrister.

The book is copiously illustrated in color. The illustration are hers.
