Memories of a Fox
Gallagher's memoir is a story of achievement and a unique love story. As a child of the Depression, Harry and his friend Gloria made a playground of the local tip. The resourcefulness he learnt stood him in good stead as he took on the world, launching the careers of Jon Henricks, Dawn Fraser and many other swimming legends.
