Elaine: “The Swiss Family Robinson” by Johann David Wyss

  • There was a book mentioned on Kevin and Jane on Tuesday 9 October 'The Ben I know' I think the title was. Can anyone help me with this. Jane mentioned that there was a cat on the front of the book.
    Thanks!

  • I found the commends on 'What are you reading?' interesting.
    I have just finished reading The Barbed-Wire University -the real lives of the prisoners of the Second World War" by Midge Gillies. In this book she relates the trials and tribulations and highs and lows of the POWs in Europe and Asia. In Europe many of the prisoners studied university degrees, became ordained ministers of relition, planned escapes, built a golf course, and formed orchestras to entertain the German citizens. The POWs of the Japanese, whilst their life was the most difficult, many still managed to learn new trades, perform in concerts and keep notes of their time behind the wire. I recommend this book for anyone interested in military history.
