In Endless Fear: A True Story
Autobiography of Colin Crump
To celebrate Colin Crump’s eightieth birthday, and to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of his brother Barry Crump’s death, CP Books have re-released In Endless Fear, the story of the Crump siblings’ often-traumatic childhood.
Colin’s autobiography tells of a childhood tainted by a terrifying level of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of a merciless father. But life was not entirely bleak and these pages also attest to days of almost idyllic freedom.
Between the fear and the freedom the Crump siblings grew up to be strong, resiliant and self-reliant, at home in the New Zealand wilderness that, for so many years, provide them respite and refuge.
This book casts the brothers’ story in a powerful light. The author’s experience in particular offers a ray of hope to others in abusive situations.
