Description

Secret Heroes is a remarkable compendium by Paul Martin, former Executive Editor of National Geographic Traveler, that illuminates the lives of thirty forgotten American heroes. Gathering together remarkable stories about unknown champions, explorers, inventors, and innovators who never made the pages of American history textbooks-not George Washington, but the tailor who saved his life.twice; the first African-American combat pilot; the 62-year-old female muckraking journalist who refused to turn her back on injustice-Secret Heroes is just the sort of fascinating and fun popular history that readers love, not unlike Kenneth C. Davis's bestselling Don't Know Much About series and Rick Beyer's The Greatest Stories Never Told.
