It has been encouraging to find a feed back from readers from Scotland to East Anglia and internationally in Australia and America all ages who say they are riveted by this story. Helen Eadie, Member of the Scottish Parliament, writes in the forward "Jon ... provides insight into a way of life that is beyond most of our experiences". This book is the first of a series of books covering the wealth of the stories of people throughout the world. This first book majors on Aden during the terrorism of the 1960's and the British evacuation out in 1967. "From barren rocks ... to living stones" is an incident packed memoir that covers eighteen months from my teenage life in the nineteen sixties. It is seen originally from a young person's perspective; as that is what I was at the time. The story reveals a life that swings from the sadness to the times of joy, times of humour and times of thoughtfulness, times of tragedy and times of tenderness. The story faces the dual challenges of a western youth culture in a home in the East. Like wise there is the contrast of an Islamic and Christian culture side by side. However, deep concerns of middle eastern terrorism of the sixties also brings a topical aspect into the learning from the events as we begin the 21st century with strong concerns about the dangers of living with the threat of terrorism. This is the true story of one person’s journey in life that brings lessons for so many in their own journey of life.
