Odd Jobs is a kaleidoscope of experiences that make up the story of a weird and wonderful career. Roger Treagus could not have imagined what lay ahead when he took on his first job as a printer's assistant. What followed was more of a wild ride than what is normally taken for a career. Roger became a postman, gardener, photographer, spy, weatherman and lighthouse inspector just for starters, never really knowing what would be next. The story is not just about the jobs, as each came with its own assortment of fascinating characters with their own stories to tell. We meet ancient bushmen, then World Bank Executives, to pipe-smoking First-Nation elders advising on caribou migrations and the fiery Chilean captain of a doomed ship. The account ends with an unsolved mystery posed as yet another work adventure.
