This book written Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton: An Extraordinary Story of Courage and Survival in Vietnam was written by Amy Shively Hawk, Captain Shively’s adopted daughter. It’s a touching story of an American hero. It’s one of ultimate inspiration: despite brutal treatment in prison, the contemplation of suicide, and his beloved girlfriend moving on back home, he somehow found hope – proving, in his words, that “Life is only what you make of it.” Escaping prison and eventually reuniting with his long-lost love, Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton is an encouraging story of hope and love that America needs in this negative news cycle. It’s a great story and one that really shows what people are capable of under the worst circumstances.
