Publisher Description:

As an Olympic runner, a bombardier in the Army Air Corps, and a prisoner of war, Louis Zamperini was determined to thrive and survive. Never backing down from a challenge, Louie lived a life of adventure while modeling hope and forgiveness to a generation.

A magnet for trouble as a boy, Louis Zamperini determined to create a new path for himself. Nicknamed the "Torrance Tornado," he set national records and traveled to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. His resolve as a runner was matched by his will to survive a plane crash, weeks adrift at sea, and years in a prison camp. This American hero encouraged countless others to have faith and to persevere through trials, revealing that no life is beyond redemption (1917-2014).

Category Description for Heroes of History:

Youth With a Mission, who has put the biographies of so many heroes of our faith into print, now has turned their attention to the heroes of our nation, telling the inspiring stories of brave individuals such as Harriet Tubman, John Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Clara Barton and George Washington. Each of these nearly 200-page portraits follow the individual from his or her life through their deaths and remembrances, capturing the accomplishments and disappointments in their lives, and doing so in a well-researched but lively, "like you were there" style, transforming these impressive figures from history into a great and heroic, human individuals that we can look up to and respect.

Audiobooks on CD are now available for several of the books. These run 4-5 hours and are read by Tim Gregory.
