Tales of Famous Heroes

Get inspired by real-life stories of great pioneers, from Winston Churchill to Sojourner Truth, Jane Goodall to Muhammad Ali. Come and meet the heroes who have shaped the world we live in! Who refused to give up her seat on a bus? Whose name means ‘tree-shaker’? Who spoke the Shoshone language and travelled across more than eight thousand miles of wilderness as a guide? Whose left foot was the first human foot ever to step on the Moon? The twenty-five pioneers in this book explored new frontiers, broke down barriers, changed laws, battled diseases, and fought for equality. Meet them in this brilliantly illustrated book of profiles, quotes and photos, full of stories which are both entertaining and awe-inspiring.
