"'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.

'I encourage you today to fan the flame inside of you. Fan it until it burns brightly. Never give up on the greatness for which you were created. Realize that your hunger for adventure is God-given; wanting to try something new is a wonderful desire; embracing life and aiming high is what you were made for. ' NEVER GIVE UP is classic Joyce Meyer: empowering, motivational, understanding and human. Drawing on the examples of other people who never gave up, Joyce writes on: Never Give Up On Yourself, Never Give Up On The Future, Never Give Up When Success Does Not Come Easily, Never Give Up Hope and The Rewards Of Never Giving Up.

Throughout the course of history, freedom fighters have been many and varied as have the motivations and the successes of the revolutions they attempted and inspired. Whether their beliefs were correct or misplaced, the courage to fight for the cause has always been the common denominator. They stood alone frequently in the face of enormous adversity and attempted to change the face of the world around them. Freedom Fighters is a record of inspirational, courageous, determined, and sometimes very dangerous people, and the places they secured for themselves in history.
