s/o What's a good book for a young man (age 16/17) about great men of character?


Recommended Posts

I have a nephew for whom I want to buy a book. He's a very intelligent, serious, mild-mannered, introverted Eagle Scout. He's active in church but not a "holy roller." His dad is conservative and his mom is liberal. So nothing too "in your face" one way or the other. I know there are some great books out there, but I've been out of the loop for too long. Suggestions?

My first thought was the Hobbit, then the Lord of the Rings trilogy.


What kind of books does he like to read?


He's been a voracious reader all his life, plus his dad is a fantasy buff, so I'm sure he's read all of these long ago. Great suggestions, though! This is the problem with books - you never know what they already have, especially this kid.
