We Are Not Afraid : Strength and Courage from the Town That Inspired the #1 Bestseller and Award-Winning Movie
by Homer Hickam




Overview -
Today, fear affects even the strongest of us. Sometimes it's immediate, caused by a sense of imminent danger-the kind we felt after terrorists destroyed the magnificent World Trade Center, tore a giant wound in the Pentagon and killed thousands of people. But sometimes fear becomes a normal way of life.

In his best-selling memoir October Sky (aka Rocket Boys), Hickam introduced us to the rugged town of his youth, Coalwood, West Virginia, and the people who took on the hazardous and often brutal enterprise of coal mining. To survive and prosper, these people relied on an approach to living that would get them through hard times with an almost unnatural resilience:

We are not afraid • We are proud of who we are • We stand up for what we believe • We work hard • We believe in miracles • We are still not afraid.

Hickam takes us beyond fear, both real and imagined, to find courage and strength. We Are not Afraid couldn't be more timely-or more needed-than it is today.
