This story is true, although it reads like fiction, and Pulitzer Prize winner John Frasca and Michael Harris have captured the tragedy, despair, courage and faith with which it was lived. A flaming airplane crash in India during World War II begins the unbelievable story of Charles Woods. Burned beyond recognition, he spent 5 years in and out of hospitals, undergoing 60 operations, while doctors re-constructed his face and hands. Finally back in Dotham, Alabama with only one eye and crippled hands, Charles Woods began building what is now a $10 Million international business empire. This is the story of the agonizing 5 years of faith and courage. The story of a man who would not be defeated. The epilogue tells of Mr. Woods' climb to financial success, his entry into politics, and his enduring faith and generosity. --- from book's dustjacket
