'May You Never be Weary': Life on the North West Frontier of the Raj and Tamer Places
More Views

John Auret was born on the North West Frontier of India, the son of a British Army officer stationed there. He expected to follow in his father's footsteps - but history would decree otherwise. After many adventures and skirmishes John rose to the rank of Major in the British Indian Army and also worked in the Indian Political Department, but while on leave back in Britain his career disappeared overnight. India became independent and the nation of Pakistan was born. Next came a decade as a farmer and coffee grower in Kenya, where the tumultuous political situation would ultimately uproot John and his young family again. Finally they settled in New Zealand and began life anew. Now in his 90s, John Auret's entertaining and eventful memoir captures the atmosphere, escapades and perils of the North West Frontier and Kenya in the dramatic twilight of the British Empire.
