In The Silver Bears, Erdman tells the story of a group of Olympic athletes from the former Soviet Union who come to the United States in the early 1990s in search of a better life. The athletes are faced with a multitude of challenges--from learning to live in a new country to overcoming the language barrier to competing at the highest level. Despite the challenges, the athletes rise to the occasion, culminating in a stunning victory at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona.

This touching and inspiring story is a testament to the power of determination and the strength of the human spirit.; 8vo; 260 pages; Price? ? ?
