Stolen, beaten, deprived of his liberty and used as child labour, Bill Simon's was not a normal childhood. He was told his mother didn't want him, and that he was the scum of the earth and was locked up in the notorious Kinchela Boys Home for eight years. His experiences there would shape his life forever. This title tells his story.
