261 pp, 7 1/4" H. Modern Library Book 286. "Countless afflicted and sorrowing people from every part of the world have found solace and inspiration in this testatment to the heroism of young John Gunther who died at the age of seventeen after a gallant but losing fight against the ravages of a brain tumor. The record of his brief life, so tenderly and poignantly portrayed, is the story not so much of suffering and death, but of courage and consideration and selflessness. Besides being one of the rare consolatory books in the world's literature, it has become immeasurably influential in the campaign to combat cancer. For this edition, John Gunther (father of 'Johnny'), writes a new and profoundly moving account of the influences this memoir has had on the fortunate as well as the sorely stricken everywhere." Very light browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has been price- clipped, light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, a few tiny edge tears and chips, minor browning/soiling.
