From the Publisher
Editors Note A provocative analysis of American patriotism honors individuals who the author believes live most in accord with founding-father intents, from a minister who created a multicultural choir to a retiree who created a health-care plan for people without insurance. By the award-winning author of Last Rights.
Annotation Journalist Stephen Kiernan interviewed hospice volunteers while doing research for a book on end-of-life care and was struck by the meaning and purpose public service seemed to give their lives. In AUTHENTIC PATRIOTS, Kiernan argues that such service is crucial not only to personal fulfillment but also to getting the country back on track. With its stories of ordinary people working to better their communities and Kiernan's five-point plan to fix America, the book is part Profiles in Courage, part call to arms.
