Topic: Factual account of a man's lifelong fight for handicapped children in Western Sydney.

There are only memories, borrowed words and ageing documents salvaged from the past, which have taken decades to compile, to tell this true story.

Readers will be able to relate with many of the events that evolve throughout the chapters, which go back to the era of ‘illegal’ gambling that existed before the introduction of licensed clubs, the TAB, casinos and the installation of poker machines in hotels.

The story crosses the paths of Queen Elizabeth II, The British House of Lords, Prime Ministers, State Premiers, high profile Federal and State Members of Parliament, Councilors from Bankstown, Blacktown, Fairfield and Liverpool, the American Roller Game, Jack Mundey, a group of Unscrupulous Businessmen, the Law Courts, Barrister Kevin Ryan, a host of high profile Media Personalities (including Mike Gibson, Paul Nicholson, John Laws, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Alan Jones), The Macquarie Bank, The Canterbury-Bankstown Rugby League Club, Gary Johnson and many others.

In 1953 the Author (owner and editor of a local Bankstown newspaper) had everything a man could wish for, a beautiful wife, a daughter and newborn son - when the parents’ worst fears are confirmed by a doctor, that their baby has an unidentified abnormality… the trauma that follows shatters the family.
