Clearing the Hurdles is Joe McGowan's extraordinary story. He has lovingly crafted every word of this book with meticulous attention to every detail, from the writing and photography, to the design of the book itself. The end result is the story of someone who has lived life at the pace of a Gold Cup horse in sight of the winning post. His love of words, writing, poetry and music embellish every page, and not only commemorate a life less ordinary but chronicle a remarkable era in the country he helped to build.
