This book features the true stories of 23 Ohioans who defied the odds. They are men and women, young and old, of many races. Some live long ago and some are still in the news today. They are pioneers, our defenders, our inventors, our angels of mercy. When they were told "it couldn't be done," they did it, anyway--showing us all how courage and character really do count. This inspiring and fun-to-read book profiles 23 Ohioans who have exhibited outstanding character and courage. Some are quite famous, others not at all. Among the famous are the Wright Brothers, Tecumseh, Harriett Beecher Stowe, Toni Morrison, and Jesse Owens, Thomas Edison, Neil Armstrong & others. Among the not-so-famous, but should be, are Jacob Parrott, Mary Ann Bickerdyke and Janarius MacGahan. Each hero's story is told in such a way that it is interesting and fun to read. For the reader who would like to learn additional information, a list of suggested reading is included at the end of each chapter. There are photos throughout the book.
