Star of Courage: Recognizing Canadas Heroes
|They come from the cities and farms, military bases and tourist
towns, seaside bungalows and urban apartments. All are ordinary people who did
extraordinary things. Not one of them sought recognition, yet all are worthy of
our admiration. They are Canadas heroes, recipients of the prestigious
Star of Courage, and these are the stories of their
Passionately told by John Melady, the tales of their courage span the nation and beyond: a heart-stopping rescue on the storm-tossed Atlantic, a plane crash on a mountain peak, a robbery and cold-blooded murder on the Saskatchewan prairie and a dramatic rescue at the very brink of Niagara Falls, to name just a few.
Whether the quick-thinking seven-year-old who foiled a molester, the quiet young woman who disarmed a killer, or the soldier who became a human shield: these courageous individuals will inspire readers and prove to Canadians that there are great heroes in our midst.
