Natural Born Heroes: How a Daring Band of
Misfits Mastered the Lost Secrets of Strength
and Endurance, by Christopher McDougall.
After McDougall learned about a group of
ancient Greek soldiers who raced across
mountaintops on all-night missions, he set out
to learn more. His research of the runners’
heroics revealed that ancestral techniques
played a large part in their abilities. In this
book, McDougall encourages readers to turn
to nature for fitness—with free running, swimming, jumping and more—to accomplish their
own feats. (Item #990434, 4/14)—Scott Losse
Rescue at Los Baños: The Most Daring
Prison Camp Raid of World War II, by Bruce
Henderson. In early 1945, General Douglas
MacArthur assigned a group of soldiers to rescue the more than 2,000 prisoners being held
at the Filipino Los Baños prison camp, where
conditions were worsening every day. The rescue by soldiers and Filipino guerrillas is still
hailed as one of the most successful rescue
missions in modern military history. Utilizing
interviews, memoirs and archival research,
Henderson has created a story that offers up a
bit of history as exciting as any work of fiction.
