Amazing Tales for Making Men Out of Boys GIVEAWAY!!

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to Gabriel J. for winning this book.


Book Description (from the Harper Collins website)

Stories of heroism, exploration and sacrifice that will inspire boys to be courageous, honorable and open to adventure

Tales of brave and selfless deeds used to be part of every boy's education. We grew up sharing stories with our fathers, uncles and grandfathers of how great men had lived their lives, met their challenges, reached their goals and faced their deaths. Becoming a man was about comradeship and standing by your friends whatever the circumstances. And it meant that sometimes it was more important to die a hero than live a coward's life.

Amazing Tales for Making Men Out of Boys is packed with classic stories of courage and heroism from around the world, including: D-Day and Omaha Beach; the Charge of the Light Brigade; the Battle of Dien Bien Phu; the Siege of the Alamo; the Moonwalkers and Apollo 13; the Flight of the Nez Perces; Josiah Harlan and the Trouble with Afghanistan; the Demons of Camerone; the Battle of Isandlwana; the Yangtze Incident; the Battle of Trafalgar; Shackleton's Boat Journey; Scott of the Antarctic; Thermopylae; the Revolutionary War Naval Battle of John Paul Jones and the Bonhomme Richard.

MY REVIEW

This book wasn't really my cup of tea. Although the stories are well written and interesting they aren't exactly ones I would like my sons emulating. This is definitely not a book for children.

Christina - xristya@rock.com - I'd like to win this book just because I'm curious about what it has to say. Does it go the Macho route? Does it emulate super heroes or workaholic? I'm just curious!
