Cyclones, Floods and Flaming Furies

Personal stories by members of U3A Darwin Inc.

Collected and Edited by Allan Thompson

University of the Third Age Darwin Incorporated, 2000, [First Edition], ISBN 0646396781, paperback

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, no inscriptions, un-creased spine (see photographs)

“The stories in this book are a mix of written and oral work.  Some members elected to write their own histories, whilst others preferred to dictate them onto a tape for transcription by the editor.
Except where obviously essential, there deliberately has been no attempt to edit material in regards to style and phrasing in order to preserve the integrity of the individual stories, to maintain the variety of textures inherent when a number of people gather to tell their trials, tribulations and triumphs.  I believe that each person’s personality has been maintained in each story.  If you notice a ‘gender bias in this book it stems from the fact that the membership of U3A Darwin is predominantly female.”
