For every tragic story of a life unraveled by battle, there are a dozen tales of men and women who have managed to triumph over the harrowing experiences of war and ruin. The Price of Their Blood is a celebration of these triumphs, offered at a time when interest in patriotic heroes runs deep and passion for wartime remembrance runs high.
The Price of Their Blood, by Jesse Brown, written in collaboration with New York Times bestselling author Daniel Paisner, offers compelling portraits of more than a dozen American men and women, including:

Michael A. Naranjo, U.S. Army: a Santa Clara Pueblo Native American who was blinded and had only partial use of his right hand, but went on to become an acclaimed sculptor the artist who sees with his hands whose works are sought by museums and collectors around the world

Alfred Pugh, U.S. Army: at 107, believed to be the nation's oldest living combat veteran, suffered permanent laryngitis by the inhalation of mustard gas during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive in France during the first World War, before going on to a long career with the U.S. Postal Service in his hometown of Westbrook, Maine

Felicia Weston, U.S. Army: partially blinded in a Scud missile attack on a warehouse in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, during the Persian Gulf War, she now works with DAV, fulfilling a promise she made to herself to help other injured veterans put their lives back on track

The profiles in The Price of Their Blood focus on the call to service, the will to live, and the power to carry on.
