Another blockbuster from author Michael S. Malone, the best-selling author of Four Percent! True stories of Scouting heroism will thrill and inspire Scouts of all ages.

Running Toward Danger is about one of the least-known and least-presented major awards offered by the Boy Scouts of America—the Honor Medal for Lifesaving.

In its various forms, it embodies the Metal of Merit for saving a life, the Honor Medal for doing so at personal risk, and the Honor Medal with crossed palms for extreme personal risk—all that has made Scouting an honored American icon for over a century.

This book is a gripping treasury of over 170 real-life, action-packed stories of Scouts who earned the Honor Medal by saving a life (or two).

Includes: WELCOME by Michael Surbaugh, Chief Scout Executive, Boy Scouts of America: FOREWORD by Hershel 'Woody' Williams, Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, Iwo Jima, WWII; STATEMENT by D. Kent Clayburn, Chairman of the National Court of Honor, Boy Scouts of America; and PROLOGUE by William P. Hemenway, Great-Grandnephew of American Scouting founder Dan Beard.

Hard cover, 384 pages
