Taking along the many tough and uncompromising lessons learned together with the indispensable soul-saving brand of mining humour, Donald Keith stepped into the outside world of private commerce and worldwide travel—all of which was completely alien to him.

True Travel Tales presents stories with self-effacing humour leading the way to mutual multicultural understanding and cooperation—with a little danger thrown in. Don’t forget to take your values and principles with you; they are sure to serve you well wherever you go—my parents were right.

“A first-class cracking book which gives a witty and amusing insight into travel and business from 1960s onwards, very easy to read and identify with, complete with laugh-out-loud anecdotes and stories that resonate with anyone who has worked or travelled to the far-flung reaches, was impossible to put down and made an 11-hour flight to San Francisco a much more enjoyable experience.”

The author was born in Astley, Greater Manchester, in 1933, to a coal-mining family and blessed with a mother who was determined against the odds to give her two sons the best education she could muster. She worked tirelessly to achieve that end in days when grammar school was for the fortunate few—the very few in that local area.

Following back-breaking, early working experience in the mining industry, Donald eventually attained the status of Chartered Engineer, which eventually took him around the world as a consultant engineer to the pharmaceutical and confectionery industries.
