A painter and a teller of stories

Quiet Hero: The Ira Hayes Story

by S.D. Nelson

Growing up on the Gila River Indian Reservation in Arizona, Ira Hayes was a quiet and shy boy, never the center of attention, often feeling lonely and out of place. While serving in the Marines in WWII all of this changed when Ira was at the center of a famous moment of victory in US military history on the island of Iwo Jima. This is the story of one person’s courage and a poignant tribute to Hayes. For readers ages 6-9.
