Description: When Welles Crowther was a boy, his father gave him a red handkerchief for his back pocket. Welles kept it with him that day, and just about every day to come; it became a fixture and his signature. Welles became a volunteer with the local fire department in New York. When the Twin Towers fell, Welles's parents had no idea what happened to him. In the unbearable days that followed, they came to accept that he would never come home. But the mystery of his final hours persisted. Eight months after the attacks, however, Welles's mother read a news account from several survivors, badly hurt on the 78th floor of the South Tower, who said they and others had been led to safety by a stranger, carrying a woman on his back, down nearly twenty flights of stairs. After leading them down, the young man turned around. "I'm going back up," was all he said. The survivors didn't know his name, but despite the smoke and panic, one of them remembered a single detail clearly: the man was wearing a red bandanna.

Marilu Henner, Michael Brown
Description: Marilu Henner was moving on with her life after a divorce when her old college classmate Michael Brown, whom she had not seen in over twenty years, called her out of nowhere. Within days of their reconnecting in 2003, they became inseparable. But only months later, Michael was diagnosed with bladder cancer, and then lung cancer. Marilu refused to lose the love of her life so easily. With the knowledge she had gained on her own health journey, Marilu set about finding a path for Michael that would use the best of Eastern and Western medicine to beat his cancers and return him to optimal health. He eschewed most traditional treatments, and with Marilu's help--aided by knowledgeable and sympathetic doctors--he forged his own path. Here, Marilu tells the story of their fast-paced romance, contrasted with the day-to-day battle for Michael's life. Michael tells the story from his point of view: the search for the cause of his cancer, the anguish he felt as he realized how responsible he was for his condition, the physical and mental hardships that he had to overcome, and the triumph of love that made it all worthwhile. Not a "how-to" book in the traditional sense, Changing Normal is a book of empowerment, a call for all those facing similar challenges to take responsibility for their lives, to search for the causes of their illness and address them directly.

Candice Millard
Description: At age 24, Winston Churchill was convinced it was his destiny to become prime minister of England one day. He believed that to achieve his goal he must do something spectacular on the battlefield. Despite putting himself in danger as a British Army officer in colonial wars in India and Sudan, and as a journalist covering a Cuban uprising against the Spanish, glory and fame had eluded him. Churchill arrived in South Africa in 1899 there to cover the colonial war the British were fighting with Boer rebels. Just weeks after his arrival, the soldiers he was accompanying were ambushed, and Churchill was taken prisoner. Remarkably, he pulled off a daring escape-- but had to traverse hundreds of miles of enemy territory, alone. Churchill enlisted, returned to South Africa, fought in several battles, and liberated the men with whom he had been imprisoned. Millard spins a story of bravery, savagery, and chance encounters with a cast of historical characters. This is more than an adventure story, for the lessons Churchill took from the Boer War would profoundly affect 20th century history.
