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.
