Welles Crowther didn't see himself as a hero. He was just an ordinary kid who played sports, volunteered for the local fire department, and eventually headed to college and then Wall Street. Throughout it all, he always kept a red bandanna in his pocket, a gift from his father. On September 11, 2001, Welles was working on the 104th floor of the World Trade Center's South Tower when the buildings were attacked. What he did next would change the course of many lives. That day, the legend of the Man in the Red Bandanna was born. Award-winning ESPN reporter Tom Rinaldi brings Welles's inspirational story of selflessness and compassion to life in this accessible young readers adaptation of his New York Times bestselling book, perfect for helping the post-9/11 generation understand the meaning of this historic day through the eyes of one young man.
