Continuing on as a series from The Australian Book of True Crime, this book tells the amazing stories of Australian heroes throughout history. Each chapter focuses on a different hero - from the 19th century through to the modern day. Some heroes are ordinary people accomplishing extraordinary deeds in their daily jobs like Dr Fiona Wood who created plastic skin which has saved the lives of numerous burn victims, including those maimed in the Bali bombing. Other heroes display incredible bravery during times of war such as Tom Diver Derrick, a WWII hero who Major Peter Cosgrove has called Australia's greatest-ever soldier. From explorers, soldiers, doctors and nurses to charity workers, religious figures, and everyday mothers and fathers, Larry Writer offers a fascinating look into the life of some truly inspirational Australians
