A celebration of American courage and tenacity, this sumptuous visual history details the stories of more than 125 of our nation's most gutsy and resolute citizens—those who overcame extraordinary odds through faith, will and guts—from George Washington and Helen Keller to Jim Lovell, Jackie Robinson and many more, both famous and lesser-known. Each chapter opens with a feature on John Wayne, highlighting a specific trait of "grit," then examines dozens of other American legends who exhibited that same attribute in awe-inspiring fashion. A fun, fascinating book celebrating American optimism, patriotism and good old-fashioned bootstrap determination.
