Robert Gascoigne

ABOUT Robert

Robert Gascoigne, Age 81. A world traveler, mostly bush and track walking. And I am a story teller.

An image on a recent trip to a Yorkshire coal mine burnt a story into my mind that I think everybody must know.

Story titles. I have two stories tell.

The Trap Door.

A personal story of how my great grandfather and my grandfather worked under terrible conditions in a coal mine for a pittance, and how a Baron profited from this.

How I learned about Everything.

A funny personal story of how I, as a boy and a teenager. I learned about everything.

And a poem.
