This is the amazing life story of one of the greatest wild animal trainers of all time - a man who has performed in circuses throughout Europe and America; who has been decorated for his courage and performance by seventeen countries; and who is famous for his humane treatment of his animals.

My Turn Next is packed with so many hair-raising incidents that it seems a miracle that the author is still alive to tell his tale. It is the story of a man dedicated to his profession, a story of triumphs and failures, incredible exploits and deadly danger. But if action and adventure form the keynote, the book i also full of fascinating animal lore and famous personalities, and is imbued with the poetry and philosophy of a life lived in the shadow of death.

Condition: Very good book in fair dustjacket. Boom is tight and unmarked, other than a stamp inside the front cover stating: "From the CIRCUS collection of Don Stacey". The cover is worn and the spine is torn. Click on photograph above to see close-up of book that is for sale.
