In Search of Heroes Zusammenfassung

In Search of Heroes: Stories of seven remarkable men Gina Lennox

What makes an honourable man and who are the heroes of our time? Five in-depth stories of seven remarkable men allow us to explore the concept of hero. Mythical heroes went on dangerous adventures fighting legendary battles and monsters. Modern heroes face frontiers of a different kind. The seven men who tell their story in In Search of Heroes shine with spirit and passion. They are men of integrity and contributors to their community. Their inner and outer journeys both reflect and inspire our own.'There's something that the individual carries which is vital, which the corporation does not carry, the nation does not carry, something vital to the knowing of ourselves and to our survival.' - MICHAEL LEUNIG, CARTOONIST'What fire fighting has taught me is that adrenalin does different things to different people - it can put you on the right tram or the wrong tram, and if you haven't got control of it, you're going to get on the wrong tram.' - BILL JONES, ONE OF THREE FIREFIGHTERS'Most of the time I'm an easy-going bloke. I like a bit of fun if you really come to know me. But if I can't get out of an argument, if you can't run any further, well, you have to take a stand.' - KAJAI FRANK SEBASTIAN, KIMBERLEY LAND COUNCIL.
