It is an insight into country life that is unrecognizable to the smart phone generation and the story of family and service during a time where Australia was evolving from rural sufficiency into a globalized world.
SYDNEY (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
Based on a lifetime of diligence, heartbreak and triumph, John Chatterton shares the unique story of a man who refused to give up in the face of adversity in his new autobiography, “My Journey: From Bush to Banker and Back.”
Living out his challenging childhood on a dairy farm in the Australian countryside at the outbreak of WWII, Chatterton uprooted his entire life at the young age of 16 to follow his dream of becoming a banker.
“It is an insight into country life that is unrecognizable to the smart phone generation and the story of family and service during a time where Australia was evolving from rural sufficiency into a globalized world,” Chatterton said.
Successfully rising to lead the retail operations at one of Australia’s most prominent banks, Chatterton lived a comfortable life with his wife and four children, until a series of painful tragedies struck when his only daughter was murdered followed by the death of his youngest son.
“I hope the way in which we handled these tragedies and the lessons we learned from them may be of assistance to others going through a similar ordeal,” Chatterton said. “Despite these enormous blows, my wife and I are still very happily married some 53 years later.”
“My Journey: From Bush to Banker and Back” offers readers a window into the life of a man who, in spite of the many trials he encountered, never gave up on his passion and hopes to encourage others to do the same.
