More Description

What makes a hero? Does anyone know, until they are called upon to help, if they have what it takes?

In "Alaska's Heroes: A Call to Courage," discover some of the Last Frontier's real heroes.

These gripping stories of the Alaska State Award for Bravery-Heroism recipients celebrate true heroes: those who have unselfishly undertaken risks to their own lives and safety to help others in danger. A man risks hypothermia in an ice-cold lake to save passengers from a crashed plane. A compassionate flight attendant calms a hijacker, helping to bring a terrifying ordeal to a safe conclusion. While on his paper route, a thirteen-year-old boy ventures into a blazing home to rescue two young children.

Accompanied by historic photos of the medal recipients, this is the only book to tell the death-defying tales of these heroes. Their true-life struggles will both thrill and inspire you.
