At age five, Brierley was separated from his brother on a train ride and ended up on the streets of Calcutta, 1,000 miles from home. He was brought to an orphanage and eventually adopted by a couple in Australia. Not knowing the name of his hometown, at age 30, he used Google Maps to find landmarks he remembered from his childhood, then journeyed back to look for his birth family. A simply fascinating story.
