The book is "Prelude to Courage, An Air Warrior’s Journey of Faith," written by David H. Bergquist of Bangor, ME.

"Prelude to Courage" is a compelling story about Austin Keith, a B-52 pilot whose plane went down during WWII. Sensing that he might die, Keith penned a farewel letter to his family.

"Gilford resident, Nancy Marcoux’s friendship with Keith’s sister, Marion Keith-Higgins of Laconia, brought me to Gilford,'' says Bergquist, a historian. "Nancy had enough material including the farewell letter so that I could write the biography of Austin Keith," says Bergquist. "Nancy’s help was invaluable."
