Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


This Book One of a trilogy follows the life of one Johnny Duggan. This part covers his formative years. Johnny was born just before the start of the Second World War. His life as a young boy was somewhat controlled by his father. At preparatory school, moreover, he found that he was bullied by one particular ruffian and, later on at college, by two others. When he left school, he found that bullying was not necessarily limited only to educational establishments. Constantly being goaded by his parents, he made up his mind to find a new life for himself in Africa. The Second book follows his life as it unfolds in the then brand new independent country of Zambia. It follows the twists and turns that Johnny encounters before he returns to the United Kingdom. The Third book follows Johnny to Switzerland and then back to Africa, firstly to South West Africa (now Namibia), and then to South Africa and the USA before he finally returns to the United Kingdom to hang up his roving shoes. But that is not the end!
