Brave Companions: Portraits In History

Product Description

Simon Schuster

Imported from USA

The bestselling author of Truman and John Adams, David McCullough has written profiles of exceptional men and women past
and present who have not only shaped the course of history or changed how we see the world but whose stories express
much that is timeless about the human condition. Here are Alexander von Humboldt, whose epic explorations of South
America surpassed the Lewis and Clark expedition; Harriet Beecher Stowe, "the little woman who made the big war";
Frederic Remington; the extraordinary Louis Agassiz of Harvard; Charles and Anne Lindbergh, and their fellow
long-distance pilots Antoine de Saint-Exupary and Beryl Markham; Harry Caudill, the Kentucky lawyer who awakened the
nation to the tragedy of Appalachia; and David Plowden, a present-day photographer of vanishing America. Different as
they are from each other, McCullough's subjects have in common a rare vitality and sense of purpose. These are brave
companions: to each other, to David McCullough, and to the reader, for with rare storytelling ability McCullough brings
us into the times they knew and their very uncommon lives.
