Harry Gage Carpenter looks back at almost ninety years of life in this memoir that celebrates freedom, love, and hard work. His life would change forever in 1947 when he met Doodie Kirkpatrick of Glen Ridge, New Jersey, while they were both working at Silver Bay, New York, on beautiful Lake George. He was crushed when she rejected him to date someone else, but they’d meet again a few years later, and this time they’d stay together—for more than sixty years. Shortly after getting married to Doodie, the US Army sent him to fight in the Korean War. When he returned home, he eventually began working for his wife’s father, the founder of W. S. Kirkpatrick&Co. Even though he was only twenty-five years old and had zero experience in aviation, the future of the company, which sold spare aircraft parts to foreign airlines, depended on him. For the next thirty years, he’d travel the globe and grew the business. Join Carpenter as he looks back at the high points of a long, marvelous life in Unique Adventures.
