The Bumper Book of Bravery by Charlie Norton

the bumper book of bravery norton charlie

From winter explorers to daring snitches and tales of animal bravery, along with the sportsmen who have played through pain, and much, much more -- no act of bravery is left undocumented. I only cried for ten hours. Is it best displayed by marching into danger, making the charge, or by resisting, enduring without complaint? From ocean depths to giddy heights and everything in between, The Bumper Book of Bravery will awaken the adventurer and hero inside of us all. Norton had been working on a number of unfinished novels and screenplays, as well as a series of adventure books inspired by his children but most of his time after the Telegraph was occupied by adventure journalism. It's big enough and detailed enough to tick the quality box, whilst being perfect for flicking through when digesting a mahousive turkey meal in the afternoon.
