Where There's Smoke There's Fry/Hales, Chris/Paper/0859052591/S026-E
From the battlefields of Gallipoli to the Karri Country of the South West of Western Australia, Alfred Narroway Fry lived a remarkable life. So remarkable the reader will conclude that he had more lives than a cat.
Where There's Smoke There's Fry captures the many facets of this quixotic and much loved character. This accountant, musician, league footballer, soldier, pilot and farmer played an integral role in the lives of the group settlers in the lower South West.
Leading a charmed life, this man happily put each of his ninety-nine lives on the line, in his great belief, "You will go only when your number is up."
The stories of Alf Fry appear as tall as a Karri tree, but each one of them is true, providing an authentic record of pioneering days. This creates fascinating and lively reading.
Growing up in the South West surrounded by colourful characters has given the author an affinity with Alf. With a background in pottery Chris has also established a pottery in Hong Kong for disabled people and she and her husband, Leith, farm at Mayanup located in South Western Australia.
