Heroes of Ohio: 23 True Tales of Courage and Character
By Rick Sowash, Marcia Muth (Illustrator)

Here are the true stories of 23 Ohioans who defied the odds. They are men and women, young and old, of many races. Some lived long ago and some are still in the news today. They are our pioneers, our defenders, our inventors, our angles of mercy. When they were told, "it couldn't be done," they did it — showing us all how courage and character really do count.
