Born the son and grandson of military men, Senator John McCain from Arizona was destined for a life serving his country in the armed forces. Like many great men, he occasionally struggled with authority, but once he found his true calling -- flying naval aircraft -- his ideals and commitment to his country took him far.

From the low point of five years as a prisoner of war to the high points of raising a large, happy family and being chosen as the Republican nominee in the 2008 presidential election, Senator McCain has lived an incredible life driven by a love of his country and a desire to serve it to the best of his ability.

This picture book biography, written with great love and insight by his oldest daughter, writer Meghan McCain, shows us the public John McCain and the personal John McCain in a way we've never seen before -- making this American hero come to life before young eyes.

I haven't read this, but, I do like MEGHAN McCAIN and her dad, JOHN. She just needs to stop thumping TRUMP about the 'My heroes weren't captured' joke. That was CHRIS ROCK who came up with it when he was backing BARACK OBAMA ten years ago. C. R. should have been ashamed to ever write it, and The Donald should NOT have repeated it, so he does need to stop saying it since things have changed and worsened for J.M. since he LOST. I guess he was getting back at McCain for dissing him of course, but...!

There, I got THAT off my chest! ; )
