There is no knowing what lies in a man's heart. On a trip to buy ponies, Frank Ross is killed by one of his own workers. Tom Chaney shoots him down in the street for a horse, $150 cash, and two Californian gold pieces. Ross's unusually mature and single-minded fourteen-year-old daughter Mattie travels to claim his body, and finds that the authorities are doing nothing to find Chaney. Then she hears of Rooster - a man, she's told, who has grit - and convinces him to join her in a quest into dark, dangerous Indian territory to hunt Chaney down and avenge her father's murder.

Bear Grylls knows what it takes to survive. But he’s not the first. Take the American bombardier Louis Zamperini, who survived 47 days stranded at sea by catching and killing hungry sharks and drinking the warm blood of albatrosses — only to be captured by the Japanese and horrifically tortured for years in their most brutal POW camps... Or Marcus Luttrell, a Navy SEAL who single-handedly took on a Taliban regiment before dragging his bleeding, bullet-ridden body for days through the harsh mountains of Afghanistan... Or Nando Parrado, one of the survivors of a horrific air-crash high in the ice-bound Andes, who only lived because he was willing to eat the flesh of his dead companions... In this gripping new book, Bear tells the stories of the adventurers, explorers, soldiers and spies whose refusal to quit in the most extreme situations has inspired him throughout his life. Some of them make uncomfortable reading – survival is rarely pretty. But all of them are tales of eye-watering bravery, death-defying resilience and extraordinary mental toughness by men and women who have one thing in common: true grit.

Frank McLintock was a leading player of his generation and is acclaimed as one of Arsenal's greatest captains. After transferring from Leicester, in 1970 he led Arsenal to a famous victory in the Fairs Cup and followed this up with even greater glory a year later, winning an historic league and FA Cup double. He left Arsenal in 1973 after being controversially dropped, and enjoyed four successful years at QPR. He retired from playing in 1977, to make an ill-conceived and hasty move into management. Following this difficult period he entered the often shady world of agents, and faced perhaps his worst moment in the game, becoming involved in the infamous bung scandal over Teddy Sherringham's transfer from Forest to Spurs. His is a captivating football story spanning 45 years during which he achieved fabulous success and faced shattering lows, all told with enthusiasm, humour, honesty and intense passion.

In this impressive collection, Ryle Winn introduces eight real-life heroes, each with an extraordinary tale to tell. We meet a fencing contractor who proves you can't judge a book by its cover; two octogenarian sisters with a tragic family secret; a racing enthusiast and horse-breeder who gets the shock of his life; and a gutsy timberman who has sidestepped his date with the devil on more than one occasion. Ryle's unforgettable stories are moving and uplifting, and proof that the best yarns really are from the heart. Praise for Rough Diamonds & Real Gems 'Ryle Winn has an engaging, racy style. Not many have the ability to record a yarn the way it was told and lose nothing in the translation, or even make it better.'Colin Thiele 'Winn and his characters speak in their own bush voices. This makes for some terrific and colourful reading.'Weekly Times 'This book is a lot like sitting around a campfire and listening to a bush character recount tales of life on the land.'

'True Grit' is Charles Portis beroemdste westernroman en vertelt het verhaal van Mattie Ross, die veertien jaar oud is wanneer een lafaard genaamd Tom Chaney haar vader van achteren neerschiet in Fort Smith, Arkansas, en hem niet alleen berooft van zijn leven, maar ook van zijn paard en honderdvijftig dollar. Mattie verlaat haar ouderlijk huis, met als doel haar vader te wreken. Ze huurt de hardste en meest rücksichtlose marshal in die ze kan vinden, de eenogige Rooster Cogburn, om Chaney, die zich schuilhoudt in een indianenreservaat, op te sporen. Het gehele boek wordt verteld door de ogen van de tiener Mattie, maar de knipogen zijn duidelijk die van een volwassene. Daardoor komt het in het boek aanwezige geweld nooit als een schok aan, maar wordt het terloops meegegeven (Op het politiebureau troffen we twee agenten die met elkaar in gevecht waren, en dus niet beschikbaar bleken voor het verstrekken van inlichtingen), als iets wat dagelijkse kost is, wat hoort bij het leven in het wilde Westen. Toch verliest Charles Portis nooit uit het oog dat een western voornamelijk op actie gericht moet zijn, en is de obligatoire shoot-out er dan ook eentje die volledig aan de verwachtingen voldoet

From the rural mountains of Yabucoa in Puerto Rico to the bustling streets of New York City, author Emma Gomez shares her life story in this inspiring memoir. Born in 1934 as one of ten children and then graduating from college in 1980, Gomez narrates how she overcame the challenges of being a Hispanic woman in a world that wasn’t quite ready to accept her and her high aspirations. Through many stories and anecdotes, this memoir follows Gomez from her early days in Puerto Rico, to moving to the United States, to her marriage and its issues, to raising two children, and to her work on labor issues affecting women. A true story of facing trials and the satisfaction of meeting one’s goals, her recollections provide a testament to one woman’s dedication to improving herself and paving the way for other women to do the same. Praise for Emma Gomez: A Courageous Woman Displays “True Grit” True grit—that’s exactly what you get when you read this exciting true story of this self-made woman, Emma Gomez. Within the short time that I have known her, she has unselfishly given of herself to all without prejudice, seeking to give rather than to receive. And that’s the point of the story you are about to read. Now she gives to you, the readers, just as she has given to all who have crossed her path. ...” —James G. Nolan Jr.
