Man Shoes

The Journey to Becoming a Better Man, Husband & Father

The Inspiring, true story of one man’s journey through loss and love, told with humor and heroism. A survivor of child abuse, upheaval and 13 foster homes, Tom Watson learned at an early age to overcome adversity.

Rescued at the age of five by the Watson family, he found new hope and love that helped to heal his deep physical and emotional wounds. Encouraged by a community of supporters, Tom learned vital lessons in patience, perseverance, laughter and tradition.

Years later, these lessons would be put to the ultimate test as Tom faced heartbreaking losses that threatened to destroy him. A stunning revelation of one man’s determination to live life to its fullest, Man Shoes demonstrates that new beginnings are possible at any age and at any stage of life, no matter what obstacles get in the way.

This story is an important reminder that we can live a better life and influence others to do the same! A must read for men of all ages, and for the women who love them.
