Product description

Product Description

In 1978 we (John, Susan, Zeke aged seven and Zali, four) left Australia to live in the Alps of southeastern France, so beginning an extraordinarily successful relationship with wintersport competition. We went neither for work nor study, but simply for the adventure of it. Although the decision to leave was simple, the actual going was more complex – finalising business affairs, packing up our lives – but leave we did: family, friends and financial security. We spent ten years in the mountains, the passing seasons marked by the children’s progress in ski racing. It was an active, energetic life with few comforts or possessions. Time, effort and ingenuity we had a plenty – of money there was little to spare.
Alpine Beach is autobiographical and biographical at the same time. After all, we are four, not one, and the book is a record of our lives.
