"'No! No! cried the little boy, 'Please no! I want to stay with my Mother!' 'Be quiet!' shouted the man who roughly pulled his mother from him. She was taken to a raised platform and offered for sale, immediately. The heart-broken mother was to be separated from her little boy for the rest of her life. This was the fate of thousands of women and children before slavery was abolished.One man stood out from the many who fought to bring freedom and relief from the terrors of the slave trade; it took him forty-five years to see it outlawed. His name was William Wilberforce. Wilberforce was a British member of parliament who risked being thought a fool for standing by his principles. He was an example of a politician standing for what is right, rather than what is convenient" -- back cover.

Congressman Jim Ryun has provided a wealth of stories of quiet historical heroes who have, for the most part, been ignored by popular culture and nearly lost in the mist of the past. This book is not about popular heroes or cultural icons such as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. These heroes were common people who stood firm in the face of tyranny, to give their lives for others, and to right the wrongs of social injustice. Their stories will inspire you to rise up to slay the dragons of your world.
