Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Author Bruce Feiler was a young father when he was diagnosed with cancer. He instantly worried what his daughters' lives would be like without him. "Would they wonder who I was? Would they yearn for my approval, my love, my voice?" Three days later he came up with a stirring idea: he would reach out to six men from all the passages in his life, and ask them to be present in the passages in his daughters' lives. And he would call this group "The Council of Dads." "I believe my daughters will have plenty of opportunities," he wrote to these men. "They'll have loving families, but they may not have their dad. Will you help be their dad?" This is the inspiring story of what happened next, the work of a master storyteller confronting the most difficult experience of his life and emerging with wisdom and hope.
