The inspiring autobiography by a man who was born in a mothers’ home in Salford in the United Kingdom, whose proof of identity was destroyed, and who was shipped to Australia as a young boy of ten. For six years he lived in fear at the infamous Catholic orphanage, St Joseph’s Farm & Trade School (BINDOON), in Western Australia. Here the boys suffered severe physical and psychological abuse, living a life of virtual slavery.

When he was released, he worked at various jobs and then joined the National Parks Service, where he was the first ranger appointed to the Bungle Bungle National Park. On retirement, after almost thirty years of dedicated service, he was the longest-serving ranger. Despite his childhood deprivation and torture, Bob has retained an amazing resilience, living a full and productive adult life. This is his remarkable story, told in a down-to-earth and candid way, one that many post-WWII migrants and institutionalised children will (unfortunately) relate to. Signed dedication by author. pp.322 #240815
