Turning your book into a reality

An Eccentric Genius

by Jim Emerton

Jim Emerton, an icon of pigeon racing and an intellectual giant whose talents and outspoken views have made him famous far beyond the pigeon world, is a self-confessed legend in his own lifetime. He bred and raced birds for four decades with spectacular success, and now in retirement shares his wisdom freely, in person and in his copious writings, with his many disciples. A natural loner, at times even a recluse who prefers remote seashores and quiet fields to pubs and parties, Jim has known wild times and dark days, exultation and depression, moments of glory and ignominious defeats. Here he looks back on his eclectic life, with contributions and tributes from some of his many admirers.
