Heroes: great men through the ages
Each of these heroes -- among them, rulers, artists, scientists, warriors, and philosophers -- used their special abilities to improve the lives of others. Their influence was felt during and well beyond their own lifetimes. Men such as Leonardo da Vinci and Benjamin Franklin used their genius to investigate many aspects of the world around them, contributing much to the way we look at the world today. Others, such as Prince Shotoku and Mansa Musa, made good use of their powerful positions to enact sweeping reforms for the benefit of many. Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., advocated civil rights and nonviolent resistance, both sacrificing their lives in the process.Illustrated in the artistic style popular during each man's era, with colorful and informative maps placing each hero in his geographical context, Heroes provides fascinating biographies and historical narratives made accessible and fun for young adults.
