Christopher Reeve: Hollywood's Man of Courage
In the years after Christopher Reeve rocketed to stardom as Superman, he worked hard to regain an image as a serious actor, not a cardboard superhero. He also used his popularity and influence to support human rights, animal rights, the environment, and other causes. Reeve faced his greatest challenge of all when he was paralyzed from the neck down in a horseback riding accident. This book takes Reeve personally and professionally from his boyhood in Princeton, New Jersey, to his life as a wheelchair-bound actor, director, and activist who has given new meaning to the word hero.
