On a day that changed a nation, one young man found his calling.

Welles Crowther didn’t see himself as a hero. He was just an ordinary kid who played sports, volunteered for the fire department in his town, and eventually headed off to college and then to Wall Street to start a career. Throughout it all, he always kept a red bandanna in his pocket, a gift from his father when he was little.

On September 11, 2001, Welles was at his job on the 104th floor of the South Tower of the World Trade Center when the Twin Towers were attacked. What he did next would alter the course of many lives.

That day, the legend of the Man in the Red Bandanna was born.

Award-winning ESPN reporter Tom Rinaldi brings Welles’s inspirational story of selflessness and compassion to life in this young readers’ adaptation of his New York Times bestselling book.

I am proud to say I grew up in the same town (Nyack, NY) as this hero. Wonderful and important story.

Great story of a very sensitive, caring and courageous young man. Such a heroic, yet sad, ending to a brilliant American! I applaud his parents, too, for the way they raised him, and for telling his story and keeping his legacy alive. Loved it!

This is an ugly cry kind of book and I read it in one day. I wasn't familiar with the story before reading this book, and even though I knew what happened, I still found myself bawling. Read this if you want a true story of bravery that will inspire you.
