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.
