Summary
"Derek Pugh has written an admirable book on two counts. It is a rattling good yarn and at the same time it is a fine teacher's handbook. From the moment he takes the momentous decision to accept a teaching position at Maningrida, in remote Arnhem Land, Australia, Derek develops the best possible tactics in such situations. Don't throw your weight around too much; learn from the locals; don't have too big an opinion of yourself; be a good listener and, as Monty Python would tell us, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life"." - Foreword.
