John McCain & Mark Salter
John McCain & Mark Salter. In 1999, McCain wrote his best-selling memoir, “Faith of My Fathers.” That book ended in 1972, with McCain’s release from imprisonment in Vietnam. This is the rest of his story, about his journey from the U.S. Navy to his run for the presidency, interwoven with portraits of the mavericks who have inspired him -- Ted Williams, Theodore Roosevelt, visionary aviation proponent Billy Mitchell, Marlon Brando in “Viva Zapata!,” &, most of all, Robert Jordan, Hemingway’s protagonist in “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” who showed McCain the ideals of heroism & sacrifice, stoicism & redemption, & why certain causes, despite the costs, are worth the fighting for. This is the story of McCain’s causes, the people who made him do it, & the meaning he found. Photos.
