“Allan has outdone himself with his latest accomplishment. This remarkable book is a must read and unlike any other personal account of a journey through life. It is not just about a journey - it is about a life filled with adventure and discovery. As Allan shares his adventures with his readers, we feel we are travelling with him. He takes us from playing and coaching sports to mixing up different soup recipes for Del Monte. He brings us along on a North Atlantic crossing on a merchant ship; he seeks his fortune in Europe and eventually finds his professional passion…horticulture.
When I picked the book up I couldn’t put it down. It is skillfully written with a rare mix of loving attention, humor, practical wisdom and is chock full of life’s experiences. Allan intermingles stories about his childhood, family and professional accomplishments. His heartfelt stories are funny, insightful and inspiring. Allan’s adventure takes us from his humble beginnings in Mt Royal Canada to Lansing Michigan and then on to Athens Georgia where he gained great notoriety as the foremost horticulturist and lecturer of his time.
A warm and glowing book that I will share with many of my personal and professional friends.”
