Jack Walker was born in a gritstone house on the edge of the Yorkshire moors in 1939. He is a graduate of Exeter University and the Open University (where he obtained a Master of Arts degree in Education in 1992).
After a career in technology he decided that people were more interesting than machines and retrained as a teacher. He taught in secondary and higher education.
He now lives on the edge of Dartmoor where he investigate the remains left by people of the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. From this he has a hardback book 'Dartmoor Sun,published by Halsgrove in 2005,' also published are articles in Dartmoor Magazine. In order to gather information and photographs, he visited remote prehistoric sites at sunrise and sunset at the solstices and the equinox. He may be the first to view these remote prehistoric sites at these key times for thousands of years, the findings/experience was remarkable and amazing. 'Stonehenge' is not the only British site aligned with the sun and moon.
'Pacific Frypan' is the result of several years research into the clash of three cultures and what may happen when Earth's tectonic plates release their gigantic pressures. It's not for those of a nervous nature.

A great story!
I am not usually a reader of books like this, however the fact that I read it from beginning to end in one weekend shows that it definitely holds the attention.
In addition to this, the book raises some interesting issues as to how humanit and sceience view the world.
However, the book felt like it needed a little more editing. I won't denny that in places its not easy to work out what's going on. The occasional shift between present and past tense, first and third person for the primary character often left me feeling a little disorientated.
That said, this book is still well-worth the read even for those like me that are not regular readers of this kind of book.
