Anyone who knew young Tom Turner had good cause for wondering if he would ever live long enough to become an adult. In fact the number of brushes he had with death should probably be recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.
* Hit by a truck at four.
* Trapped in a slimy coal-dust bog.
* Attacked by a drunk soldier in a bar.
* Narrowly escaped a bullet through his heart.
* Dashed on rocks by a large wave near Cape Town, South Africa.
* Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
Following Tom's life from England to Scotland, the Mediterranean, and South Africa, author Goldie Down has written a story of a man with MORE LIVES THAN A CAT.
