David King was only ten years old when he met the Angels.

This is a story full of childhood adventures, street smarts and ingenuity. It is the story of a survivor in a time when violence in the home was commonplace, and of the gang of Angels who took him under their wings, protected him and taught him the value of 'safety in numbers'.

David's story also provides insights into the history of Melbourne's west and the teenage boys and girls who broke free of the norms of the 50s to rebel in the 60s. It is a snapshot of life in a motorcycle gang that had a code of conduct, common interests and specific values, in a time gone by.

The Angels code of 'all for one and one for all' was inclusive of all nationalities in a time of overt racism, and ensured tight bonds grew between this band of rebels and misfits who found a place to belong.

This book acknowledges the Angels who shared David's love of motorcycles and taught him skills and life lessons when home and schools had failed him. David's story offers rare insights into life in a motorcycle gang at that time in history and of a little boy lost, who survived enormous challenges to grow into an exceptionally good man.
