"Young readers will be moved by this biography of Arizona senator John McCain." --Booklist

This insightful biography of John McCain helps young readers understand how a true American maverick has influenced the Senate--and our country's politics--always on his own terms.

Known for his willingness to stand up to his own party, Senator John McCain has sometimes been called a "maverick." This fascinating biography covers McCain's life, from growing up as the son of a four-star admiral to his own time at the Naval Academy, his service as a pilot, and his experience as a prisoner of war. It explores McCain's 30 years as a senator, as well as his two bids for the presidency. Filled with photographs, and written in an engaging voice, John McCain will appeal to a generation of kids ages 8 and up eager to understand more about one of our nation's most iconic political forces.
