Due to horrible physical deformities, he spent much of his life as a fair-ground freak. He was hounded, persecuted, and starving, until his fortune changed and he was rescued, housed, and fed by the distinguished surgeon, Frederick Treves.

Here, in this fully revised edition containing much fresh information, are the true and unromanticized facts of his life.
