therapy and the amputation of his left forearm.

In an especially poignant moment in Making Cancer History, Olson and "Judy, my wife and best friend" confront the imminent surgery to remove his left hand. The reader is provided with a passionate, intimate and heart-rending glimpse of their personal struggle living with cancer, his conflicting relationship with undergoing treatment and his will to live.

Olson draws on more than half a million institutional letters, books, manuscripts and journals and interviews with hundreds of physicians, scientists, government officials, national leaders, nurses and employees in Making Cancer History. Battling cancer and ensuing devastating bouts of depression, Making Cancer History took Olson nearly eight years to complete.

Olson, Distinguished Professor of History at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, is the author, co-author, editor and co-editor of more than 30 books, with topics ranging from cancer to John Wayne. His most recent book - Bathsheba's Breast: Women, Cancer and History, also published by The Johns Hopkins University Press - was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in History and won the 2002 History of Science Category Award from the Association of American Publishers. His book, John Wayne American, was nominated for the 1955 Pulitzer Prize in biography.
