Andi Flower’s Mount Kare story is recounted in this book, which understates his battles with the single, transplanted kidney that his body wants to reject. After Mount Kare this was replaced with a perfectly matched transplant from his sister Joan Hamilton. On top of this, he has had numerous cancers removed, leaving him today with one eye, and one working ear. There are parallels between the cancers trying to destroy KDC, and the cancers eating into Andi’s body. Andi now lives with his wife Annabel on Queensland’s Sunshine coast, where he tends his lychee farm and markets extremely efficient electronic pest-scaring devices throughout Australia.
