According to author Ron Player, one of the joys of getting older, and there are few enough of them, is to be able to look back down one’s life’s path and, at last, have the opportunity to identify the various moments when something just seemed to happen that has had a lasting impact on his or her life. At 81, he recollects his journey through life with hopes to inspire and encourage optimism in everyone as they travel in their own lives’ highways and crossroads in Under Different Skies: The Life of a Wandering Geologist.

This engaging biography walks the readers through Player’s life—from his early years up to now. He offers a glimpse of his childhood, his family, adventures, getting older, and how he became interested in stones and such ‘natural’ things. He was always fascinated by the twisted and convoluted layers of rocks until he became a University student studying geology—where he discovered the answers to his many questions about the Earth. Player attempts to share chronologically arranged anecdotes that highlight his life as a wandering geologist, his diverse experiences, numerous exploits, exciting travels, glimpses of war, and many events that offered life-changing realisations. Under Different Skies: The Life of a Wandering Geologist will nourish the readers with assorted memories packed with lessons, insight and knowledge.

In Under Different Skies: The Life of a Wandering Geologist, Player has written a revealing, inspirational narrative that not only introduces the readers to the amazing, twisted world of geology, but also to the wonders of life. This book was also written as a legacy for his children to let them totally know of his life’s journey and provide help to parents in some way in their future dealings with their own children.
