In late February 1994, Andrew Gurr was persuing the appointments pages of the Sunday Times when an advert caught his eye: 'Wanted: Chief Executive of the Falkland Islands Government'. Intrigued, he decided to follow it up. Nobody was more surprised than Andrew when, a few months later, he was offered the position. There followed five remarkable years running one of the smallest governments in the world and acting as Governor for nearly a year of that time. A more curious and multi-facted job would be hard to find. Nineteen years after the war and 8,000 miles from the mother country, are these intensely patriotic islands, or merely an anachronism and an embarrassment? What is it really like to live and work there? The answers are revealed in this book, where Andre shows his understanding of the people, the heritage, the wildlife and the landscape of this breathtakingly beautiful part of the world. This book is at times moving, at times humourous, and always captivating. It is a remarkable memoir of an opportunity that only comes to a selected few.
