Campfire for the Heart is the first in a series of books about resilient people who have overcome adversity and showcase our indomitable human spirit. The compelling true stories stretch your perception of resilience, restore your love of humanity and illuminate pathways to happiness for us all.

Do you ever wonder....
how other people cope with trauma, grief and tragedy?
how other people rise from their lows?
how other people find peace after pain?

Campfire for the Heart answers these questions through 30 powerful and compelling, true stories of human resilience.

By learning how other people have converted their darkest times to personal growth and success, you may discover how you too can learn and grow from your hardships, how you can be the hero of your journey, or help others in theirs.
The stories cover a vast range of life experiences from the death of children, violence, racism, Taliban terror and wrongful imprisonment, to droughts, bushfires, cyclones, diseases, injuries, disabilities and trauma from military, police and humanitarian work.

The storytellers are mostly unknown heroes of their personal journeys, while others are well-known champions of resilience - Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton, celebrity chef Matt Golinski, Steve Parish OAM and Gayle Shann - while cave-diving legend and Co-Australian of the Year 2019, Dr Craig Challen, opens the book with a foreword.
