From the publisher
Some people have the power to inspire through their actions, words and experience. The Australians in Heroes come from diverse backgrounds—some have encountered hardships, others lead by example and a firm belief in what is right—but each and every one is an inspiration to us all.
Heroes contains 15 essays on the people who have helped shape Australia into the diverse country it is. It includes Fred Hollows, Weary Dunlop, Cathy Freeman, Len Hall and Alec Campbell (two of our last Gallipoli veterans), former governor general Bill Deane, the Black referendum leader Faith Bandler, Tom Uren who established the heritage and conservation movement in Australia, Marie Bashir, tennis hero Lew Hoad, Doris Pilkington (of the Rabbit Proof Fence runaway family), Margaret Whitlam (with Gough), cricketers Ray Lindwall and Harold Larwood (gentlemen fast bowlers), Mum Shirl (black campaigner), Michael Ward (Republic campaigner who taught about living and dying) and Bun and Phiny Ung (Cambodian refugees).
For single issues please allow up to two to four weeks for your first delivery.
