Book Description HTML

Some may say Henry has a death wish. While he is an accomplished daredevil tightrope walker in colonial Sydney, Australia, he is set on achieving 'higher and longer' walks to beat his local nemesis and bettering Charles Blondin's walk over Niagara Falls. With the help and input of his business partner and his sweetheart, he achieves more than he ever hoped for despite suffering the pitfalls of his occupation. Even when a devastating accident forces a change of direction, his imagination and drive see him soaring to heights beyond his wildest dreams while tempting and falling victim to fate itself... Take the roller coaster journey with him.
