Conversations with My Father: Jack Kyle

Conversations with My Father: Jack Kyle (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Kyle McGrath, Justine

Jack Kyle was the rugby giant of his time, but he is also so much more than a sporting legend. Here, for the first time, we get an insight into the life and experiences of this most unassuming of heroes. Whilst he was winning the Grand Slam and touring with the Lions, Jack Kyle w...as also studying to be a doctor. When he retired from playing rugby - as the world's most-capped player - his sense of adventure and medical ambition led him to settle in Chingola, in Zambia, where he spent the next thirty-four years of his life. For many years, he was the only medically trained surgeon in the town and so faced many challenges, not least the appearance and devastation caused by AIDS. Written through a series of conversations with his daughter Justine, Conversations with my Father reveals Jack Kyle as a supremely gifted rugby player, a dedicated surgeon and a gentle family man.
