Lawrence Ryan is Australia’s very own Evel Knievel. Legend: A Childhood Dream is Lawrence’s lively autobiography which traces his progress from outback Junee (NSW) to this country’s number one stuntman. As he writes: “Was there always an inner stuntman lurking in my genes? I was three when I told my dad I wanted to be a stuntman. Teacher, police officer, truck driver – these seemed okay occupations for other kids to aspire to but I knew they were tame compared to my dream."

TV personality Grant Denyer remarks in his foreword: “He’s part superhero, part gentlemen, part dreamer, partly psychotic. But, far more importantly, he’s always entertaining."

Legend is indeed an entertaining read and generously illustrated with photographic evidence of Lawrence’s astounding stunts.


Lawrence Ryan is a leaping lunatic. – Grant Denyer

Like Lawrence, I had a dream of moving to California after high school and being a motorcycle stuntman. That is why I did. Salute to chasing down dreams and making them happen. Respect to Lawrence Legend and all who chase dreams and make them real.
– Seth Enslow (Crusty Demons)

Lawrence Legend, Incredible, A tremendous stunt and one of the best parallel parks I have ever seen!! – Rove McManus after watching leap over two double Decker bus in a car.

Lawrence said it not me “Crazy”. That would have to be one of the nicest adjectives that you could use to describe this Aussie version of Evel Knievel. – George Negus
