Chosen “Best Book of the Year” by the Ozarks Writers League
So many people have done wonderful things and then drifted into obscurity. Some were involved in sports and some were military. Some were philanthropists and many were just regular people who “rose to the occasion.”
This book is filled with short stories of some amazing and inspiring people who should never be forgotten. Whether from our distant past or from today’s space program, they still hold the power to fill us with awe and make us say, “Wow! Who knew?”
Like all humans, they had flaws, but these people were also blessed with greatness and with the ability to make us proud to be Missourians. Short stories and easy to read but each and every one is true.
(Essential for high school libraries, comes with study ideas.)
