Publisher Comments:

This inspiring book on the faith, the hope, and the heart of a woman who changed a nation gives the account of her infamous stand against injustice as well as the lasting impact it has made.

Synopsis:

@lt;DIV@gt;On June 15, 1999, Mrs. Rosa Parks was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor — a tribute to the power of one solitary woman to influence the soul of a nation. But awards and influence were far from her mind when, on December 1, 1955, she refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She was not trying to start a movement. She was simply tired of social injustice and did not think a woman should be forced to stand so that a man could sit down. Yet her simple act of courage set in motion a chain of events that changed forever the landscape of American race relations. Quiet Strength celebrates the principles and convictions that have guided her through a remarkable life. It is a printed record of her legacy — her lasting message to a world still struggling to live in harmony.@lt;/div@gt;
