[Dan’s] remarkable journey is one of faith, family, and the power of perseverance.

Author Scott Brown shares the story of a Pittsburgh-area man who refused to give up after catastrophe struck in A Noble Knight: Dan Priatko’s Story of Faith and Courage ($18.49, paperback, 9781631290572; $9.99, e-book, 9781631290589).

Dan Priatko, an Army Ranger and West Point graduate, was poised to leave for his first deployment when a tragic car accident changed everything. After spending more than a year in a coma, he had to re-learn basic tasks such as walking and talking. Neither he nor his family flinched, and Dan made a miraculous recovery. His positive attitude continually inspires others, including legendary Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and Pro Football Hall of Famer Dick LeBeau. Each wrote a foreword for A Noble Knight.

“[Dan’s] remarkable journey is one of faith, family, and the power of perseverance. Most of all it is about someone who was robbed of so much but refused to let a tragedy take his essence,” Brown said.

Brown, a resident of Greensburg, PA, has written eight other books. He covered the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2006-2014 for ESPN and The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He also covered Penn State football for the Tribune-Review.
