Harry Gallagher's memoir is both a story of achievement and a unique love story. As a child of the Depression in Sydney's inner west Harry and his best friend Gloria made a playground of the local tip. The resourcefulness he learnt in these early years stood him in good stead as he took on the world, launching the careers of Jon Henricks, Dawn Fraser and many other swimming legends, and bringing Australia an avalanche of Olympic Gold. 'This is a story to inspire. It creeps into your bones, makes you want to achieve.' - Dawn Fraser
