Tales from the Tip of an Era
Deeply human, timeless true tales about life’s challenges and vicissitudes. Of adventurers, larger-than-life characters and ordinary people finding their way in a world that was tipping into the technologically-driven modern era. Of lives shaped by events and chance and the mysterious play of forces more powerful than us all. Like us they tried to overcome their weaknesses, wrestled with their personal demons and played their cards as best they could.
