Derek Tangye has lived on his own in the beautiful world of Minack since Jeannie died.'Monty's Leap' tells the story of his present way of life (then 1993),of his animals - his cat Cherry and donkeys Merlin and Susie,and of the people who,as a result of reading the Minack Chronicles,find their way to Monty's Leap.People who,as Derek explains, 'are on my wavelength or else they would not trouble to search us out'. But at the heart of the story is his philosophy,for Derek Tangye draws on his fascinating life,and that of Jeannie who was the legendary Public Relations Officer of the Savoy Hotel Group,to weave through the narrative the lessons of his experience.Monty's Leap is a profound inspiration for those of any age group who are seeking a personal freedom in this uncertain world. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering its prices, weight allowances, dimensions and lowered its qualifying compensation rates too! So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk ,for correct,insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!
