Today, with thirteen gold discs, two gold albums and one platinum album to his credit, Pat Boone has worn an amazing variety of hats: recording artist, actor, spokesperson, TV personality, radio host, author, sportsman, songwriter, religious leader and long-time husband to his high-school sweetheart.
Here is the story of the man behind the achievements.

The history of rock ‘n’ roll comes alive in these pages, lit by a faith that inspires through its determination to reach the world with a message worth hearing.
