Here to Stay: Studies in Human Tenacity

Here to Stay: Studies in Human Tenacity

John Hersey
4/5 (24 ratings)
The will to live is the connecting thread that holds together these dramatic true stories of human indomitability. The sum total has terrific impact. Hersey has covered a wide range of challenges--flood; WWII concentration camps; Hiroshima; escape from impending disaster; combat fatigue; mutilation & the return to normal life--these cover a few of the situations. The strength of the book is in the selection of material. These are ordinary people who didn't know their own strength. It's the situation that taps this hidden inner strength. Young people who read The Wall will surely find similar compassion, insight & skilled craftsmanship in this new book.--Kirkus
