Obsessed with tracking down a local hermit known to the locals as ‘Possum’, this book is an account of how Max Jones, a detective by profession, spent more than 30 years locating  and finding out who Possum was and why he was living the life he had chosen.  Rising above this account though is the story of the strong bond of friendship and understanding that developed between these two men and the incredible resolve that Possum had to live life the way he did.  David Harris has illustrated this account with a range of photos taken by Max Jones.
