Becoming Wellstone

Paul David Wellstone Jr., fell into a zombie-like state of shock when he got word that the plane carrying his parents and sister couldn’t be located on radar. On October 25, 2002, Senator Paul Wellstone, his wife, Sheila, and his daughter, Marcia, died in that tragic plane crash. As his son Dave reveals in this intimate memoir, he was also a loving advisor and an engaged father who taught his children to live with compassion and to, “Think for yourself; don’t just go around with the crowd—never be afraid to take an unpopular stand.” Becoming Wellstone is an insider’s look at Paul Wellstone in action, revealing the man behind the visionary leader who challenged the status quo.
