David Burchell was just sixteen when he lost a leg in a train accident, and here he tells of his initial despair, his convalescence and rehabilitation. He was accepted for the Air Force in World War II, and after the war worked on cattle and sheep stations in the Australian outback. Returning to the city, he took up high diving and for fifteen years performed with the South Australian Diving Troupe. He then worked in a remote area for the Shell Company, and he describes life in an outback town. In 1960, he founded the Adelaide Skin Diving Center and became involved in many exciting stunts and projects. Burchell tells his interesting story with humor.
