About the book
Gonnae no dae that? This is a Scots expression imploring someone to stop doing something. Advice Miller H Caldwell definitely didn’t follow.
In his memoir, Miller goes back to the beginning to 1950, growing up in the manse at Kirriemuir, in the north east of Scotland. After some troubling experiences, he finished schooling in Glasgow determined to lead a humanitarian life. And so he did.
After many years of humanitarian work in Ghana, Scotland and Pakistan, meeting the world’s most wanted terrorist and bringing an African dictator to his knees in tears, not to mention being mistaken for a German International footballer, Miller’s life has been most unusual to say the least. The memoirs of this author are behind most of his thirty-two previous books, proving that truth can be stranger than fiction and authors definitely write what they know. For twenty years, he has been an author with stories to tell. This, he feels, will be his last as the symptoms of his diagnosed Parkinson’s disease take root.
From Scotland to Ghana, from lows to highs to lows again, Gonnae No Dae That is a celebration of a life lived to the full, one that took meaning from personal experiences and used them to better other lives. Inspirational reading for anybody who feels the need for greater meaning and greater adventures.
