Summary 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.
