A MOST UNLIKELY JOURNEY
Growing up in post-World War II Sweden where food was scarce and the winters were harsh, a young Bill Peterson was forced to grow up quickly.
While trying to find his way in the world, he was lured to the shores of Australia and boarded the Cirrus, where the adventure of a lifetime began.
The kindness of strangers and the opportunities that followed gave rise to meeting and befriending people from all walks of life as, piece by piece, Bill laid the foundations for a more prosperous life.
From Snowmen to Kangaroos is a raw, honest and, at times, chuckle- inducing account of growing up in poverty and working against the odds to build a better life.
