Thirteen-year-old Jack, the best runner, jumper, climber, swimmer, and foot-ball player, learned two important truths from his hero father: Nothing is worth a lie, and never be afraid of anything. The colonel practiced what he preached—he was courageous and chose to do the right thing.
Now Jack faces the ultimate trial. He knows that God will always show him what is right, and the way to do it, but he struggles to find the courage he needs. Then the moment comes when there is no time to lose, and Jack sets aside any fear of losing his own life in order to save another. Surely his father would be proud!
