2016 marks the third anniversary of the publication of American Sons: The Untold Story of the Falcon and the Snowman. In that time, the book has received the kind of press many authors only dream of, including international print, TV, and radio coverage from the likes of CNN and the BBC.
Perhaps most importantly, the book continues to resonate with readers who see it as far more than just a chronicling of contemporary historical events, but an inspiring tale of survival and recovery.
With that in mind, we figure there’s no better way to celebrate the book’s third birthday than to share some of the stunning feedback we’ve received from the people whose opinions matter most: the readers themselves. Here’s just some of what people have said about American Sons: The Untold Story of the Falcon and the Snowman.
