After his son was born in 2003, New York Times best-selling author Brad Meltzer began thinking of heroic people about whom he could teach his son. He started compiling a list that grew to 52 extraordinary people who had achieved the extraordinary.
These 52 life stories are examples of everyday heroes. Some are famous, and some are less known. The stories of their selfless acts and personal struggles are told in short snippets, accompanied by photos and a quote. The mini-biographies explore the drive and inner motivation of true role models, from whom young readers can learn how to live a good life.
