The childhood adventures of three brothers growing up in a small town in country New Zealand in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. The brothers are a part of a large family of seven.

Their adventures and hi-jinx involve the deliberate flouting of family and community values. The aftermath of some of their outrageous pranks if embarked upon today would result in dire consequence. Fortunately for the brothers, none of their escapades adversely affected the overall well being of the town's populace, either individually or en masse except in maybe one or two cases but even they were questionable.

The exploits cover a period of almost twenty five years. They revolve around school, white baiting, hut building and many pastimes obsolete in today's world of television, computers, mobile phones and iPods.

Written in simplistic prose the story finishes after the boys' mother passes away. Their father had preceded her by six years.

Horgan writes in a frank, warts and all, honest and ultra humorous style which will bring back fond memories for baby boomers and will have the younger generations in fits of laughter, disbelief and awe.

      This is my second copy. I wanted one for myself and the other to pass on to friends. The friend I lent it to has already passed it on to someone else because she also enjoyed it.

        This is one of the best books I have ever read. I've just bought another copy so I can lend it to friends.
        This to me is the best type of book- easy to read, very funny and you can relate to it.
        Add to this a great price and what more could the casual reader or a book worm want!

          This was really fun to read, had me in stitches from so much laughing. It makes you reminisce on your own life and the antics we got up to when we were kids. Thoroughly enjoyable read
