The plane began to slowly glide,
then much to Louie's shock 
it started shaking back and forth,
then dropped down like a rock.

It hit the water, blew apart,

but Louie had survived!
He saw a drifting raft he'd need 
to help him stay alive.

One of America's fastest runners and a celebrated Olympic racer, Louis Zamperini suddenly found himself adrift when his plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean during World War II. Louie applied his strength, determination, and cleverness to survive many dangers at sea. Captured by the enemy, he endured two years of harsh treatment as a prisoner of war. Battling fears and nightmares after his return home, he found hope and strength as he devoted his life to God and to serving others. The adventurous life of this survivor and champion is an inspiration to all (1917-2014).

Whether reading for themselves or being read to, children love the captivating rhyming poems and unforgettable color illustrations of the Heroes of History for Young Readers series.
