ToMoreThe author describes his amusing and often boisterous adventures as a poor kid in Manchester and how at ten years old, due to his fathers crippling illness, he manages to supplement his mothers housekeeping budget and the family food supply.

To fulfill a dream he moves to Scotland, marries a local girl and they both establish businesses in the picturesque village of Langholm. Due to an International tragedy his business is destroyed and on the promise of a job in the US he moves his wife, 7 year old daughter and Labrador dog to Houston.

There are many entertaining stories. Among them, he endures the attentions of a hostile ostrich, deals with a family of rodents who take up residence in his truck and he is presented with a Congressional medal from Dick Cheneys secret service body guard.

The book is an inspirational, amusing, humorous and at times a deeply moving account of the trials and tribulations, successes, frustrations and culture shocks that were experienced by a small family group from a tiny Scottish village as they start again in one of the biggest cities in the modern world.
