Scott Morrow Adventure trilogy
Scouting for a new books of adventure for your teenagers? Check out Christopher J. Holcroft’s Scott Morrow Adventure trilogy – Only The Brave Dare, Canyon and A Rite Of Passage. Follow the unlikeliest teenager as he becomes the hero he never wanted to be but the hero a nation needed.

BraveDare Canyon Passage

Scott Morrow 01 Only The Brave Dare (2008)
Scott Morrow 02 Canyon (2008)
Scott Morrow 03 A Rite of Passage (2010)

… I saw a need to write books after teenage Scouts said they had nothing to read that reflected their journey in Scouting. I wrote three adventure books, Only The Brave Dare, Canyon and A Rite Of Passage so any teenager, anywhere can join in the frolics if a group of ordinary teens.
In my books, the boys must take on war- hardened Russian Mafia, the extreme wilds while canyoning and groups of warring motorcycle gangs. It’s a journey where ordinary teenagers emerge as heroes they never wanted to be, but ones a nation needed.
