Product description

Product Description

In the historical legends of ancient Rome, Horatius Cocles was a hero who, on his own, defended the Pons Sublicius, the bridge that led across the Tiber river to Rome, defeating the invading Etruscans.
There are many poetic versions of this story, differing only in small proportion. Many books, films and television shows feature the theme of a hero such as Horatius - Brave Heart, Robin Hood, Thierry La Fronde and Dave Crockett, to name a few.
Edwin Morris's version of this tale describes an exciting story of the life and times of ancient Rome, and at the same time presents comparisons to the life we live today. The story gives insight into lessons that we, as humans, are still trying to comprehend. We live in this world of wonder, beauty, love and trust yet let greed, treachery and destruction rule as a stronger force. In today's world of turmoil, Horatius' tale gives hope and reasons not to give up when you think all is lost. The message is quite clear that if we stick together, believe in one another and have faith, we can achieve almost anything.
Edwin has clearly delivered to the reader a novel of high standard. 'On The Bridge' is compelling, is written in layman's terms and can be read on any level. It's clever, has a strong moral message and is thought provoking.
If you like to sink your teeth into a good novel read 'On The Bridge', it's an old tale, but told here with new vigor and interest, especially when considering the world as it is today.
'On The Bridge' began as a song on Edwin's Album 'Let's Make The World a Better Place'. The song is brilliant, the album is a credit and the book rewarding...
Let's All Make the World a Better Place.
Overview of 'On The Bridge' by Carolyne Milne, Manager of Huon FM radio station.
