UNDER THE CROWN--51 Stories of Courage, Determination and the American Spirit is a book unlike any other--a compendium of inspiring accounts of personal triumph told by contemporary young women, each one a contestant in the 2001 Miss America Pageant. Though just a few pages long, each story reveals the mettle, intelligence, and heart that made these women ambassadors of goodwill--and more--from each of their respective states. With its unique concept, the book is a fascinating read on its own, but it also offers a twist: The World Trade Center disaster interrupted the pageant in Atlantic City and forced the young women to reevaluate their roles as not just contestants but U.S. citizens. How the contestants dealt with the tragedy and forged a new commitment to each other and their causes makes this book an inspirational classic.
