Publisher's Summary

We live in a world where rock superstars, athletes, celebrities, and successful businesspeople are paraded across the big screen and featured on the news as though beauty and fame and money and power made them modern-day heroes. We seem to have lost sight of who a real hero is.

Yet, America needs true heroes now, more than ever before. Not Supermen with superhero powers, but real men and women of character who will stand up and with conviction and make right, and often hard, choices in every circumstance. People who show us what it is to be good, to be brave, and to be guided by conscience and character. Men and women who are examples and whose courage shows us the way we should go.

Congressman Jim Ryun has provided a wealth of stories of quiet historical heroes who have, for the most part, been ignored by popular culture and nearly lost in the mist of the past. 

This audiobook is not about popular heroes or cultural icons such as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. These heroes were common people who stood firm in the face of tyranny, to give their lives for others and to right the wrongs of social injustice. Their stories will inspire you to rise up to slay the dragons of your world.
