Rick Santorum to release new book this fall

Rick Santorum has a new book deal.

The former Pennsylvania Senator and presidential candidate will publish his second book, American Patriots: Answering the Call, on October 2--one month before the election in November.

According to an early release provided to Yahoo News, Santorum's new book will focus on stories from American history, and will be promoted as "this generation's Profiles in Courage," John F. Kennedy's acclaimed book published in 1955. Published by Tyndale House Publishers, the book will highlight 25 "unsung" figures from the Revolutionary War, including Peter Francisco, Nancy Morgan Hart, and Elias Boudinot.

"This book was written to remind us who we are," Santorum said. "Americans today are faced with a decision. Do we want to leave our children a country that believes in the God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit happiness? Or do we want to entrust the state to provide for us in exchange for our freedom?"

After dropping his bid for the White House in April, Santorum launched his own non-profit group, Patriot Voices, to advocate conservative ideas.

Santorum's first book, It Takes a Family, made the New York Times bestseller list in 2005.
