Monkey on the Wing

The truth is stranger than fiction...

This is a true story of a loveable Aussie larrikin, tracing his wild and exuberant, often shocking, youthful adventures and travels all over the world, up until the accident that took his eyesight and should have taken his life. The story then takes on a new dimension as he traces the long, painful journey back to health and the new and different challenges of regaining the old life despite now being blind.

Throughout the whole book, you are struck by the pluck and determination, strength of character and crazy sense of humour that colour almost every adventure, even when the odds are so often stacked against him.

You are left with the question, What makes this man survive, and even more, embrace and anticipate each new day?
