In Endless Fear: A True Story

Author(s): Colin Crump

NZ Non-Fiction

"He had a length of milking machine hose in his hand and I watched in terror as once more he laid into my brother Barry with a merciless thrashing that just went on and on, Barry just lying there, as he always did, and taking it all. Then he turned on me â they were really ferocious blows. The weapon he had chosen was, without doubt, the worst we had ever endured. I yelled, screamed, pleaded, cried, and of course, wet myself." This book is Colin Crumpâs courageous and heart-warming story of growing up in a New Zealand farming family with his brother Barry. Stories of an often-idyllic country boyhood, running wild half a century ago, are interwoven with almost unbearable scenes in which an abusive father delivers brutal beatings to his spirited sons. In Endless Fear casts powerful new light on the Crump story. âI keep reminding myself that the old man did in fact give me one very great lesson in life. All I had to do was not be like him.â (Preceeding text courtesy Paperback
