A series of revealing essays on Victoria, by Andrew Kidman, a place that has permanently imbedded itself in his mind. Kidman sheds light on the many people, places and things of the region, as well as his many adventures there over the years, from watching Derek Hynd at Bells to boat rides with Wayne Lynch. Victoria is a place that has certainly changed over time, but nonetheless holds a special place in the heart of many.
