Product description

On My Own Terms

Seymour, John

Jacket is faded on the spine and there is some dust marking to top edge. Otherwise, both jacket in book are in really excellent condition. A lovely copy of this important work.

John Seymour's fame as an advocate and practical exponent of an independent, self-supporting and self-reliant way of living has spread to an increasingly wide audience. Here he describes how his personality and values formed themselves during an early wandering manhood which began when at the age of twenty he left England for Africa. John Seymour's life has had many of the features of the classic true adventure story, and in telling it he reveals, not only self-reliance and resourcefulness, but also decency, humanity and common sense.
