Tom, a
forty-year-old man lies dying in a forest but as he takes his final breath, gets
re-born in the 1970's as an eight-year-old boy, who is given the chance to
re-live his life.

This true and
controversial account of a young boy's journey through his formative years
transports you back to a time when playing outside in the South Wales Valley
had few rules or restriction and was an education in its own right.

When kids could
play outside is written about an era full of fun, freedom, pranks, competitiveness,
danger and discovery.

This is a must read for
anyone who was lucky enough to have grown up in the 1970's and discovered who
you were without the help of today's technology.
