Thomas Hobbins grew up the eldest of six children, the son of a bridge labourer. He built his own pushbike from scrap material and fished with his father to maintain the family during the lean times. Tom's progress was initially slow, but in latter years at Kangaroo Primary School, there was improvement in grades and Tom moved to high school in that school's top class. Required to leave after junior year, further studies in later years led to Accountancy qualification and eventually higher position in Electricity Industry.
Busy maintaining gardens at rural residence — among other pursuits — for a number of years, he began to research data at library in advance of commencing to write this book. A number of knowledgeable people told him not to attempt the writing of 'such a book'.
In an incredible sequence of events (of which a few more important ones only are mentioned in book), Tom somehow completed the story that he's lived for over the last six years.
Tom hopes you enjoy this true story that includes much information that many readers will discover for the first time.
