Who was John McCain? / by Michael Burgan; illustrated by John Hinderliter.

Burgan, Michael, (author.). Hinderliter, John, (illustrator.).


"In 2008, John McCain ran for president against Barack Obama, becoming a well-known national figure. But his presidential campaign was only one of the many inspirational things John accomplished in his lifetime! John was a decorated member of the US Navy who survived being a prisoner of war in Vietnam. He served as an Arizona senator for thirty years, right up until his passing in 2018. Learn all about John McCain and his life as politician who always tried to work across the aisle and to treat people fairly in this book about the maverick patriot." -- Provided by publisher.
