Meet The Books Author Geoffrey B. Haddad

Geoffrey B. Haddad was born in Kingston, Jamaica.  By the time he was five, he had developed a passion for the outdoors.  At sixteen, he had hiked most of the hills of the southern flanks of the Blue Mountains, either on cub/scout outings or hunting with his father.  Conquering the Peak however, was always a personal goal.  Spontaneously accepting that challenge on December 15, 1967 almost cost him his life.
