Compiled and written by the team of Toby Reynolds and Paul Calver, each succinct biographical entry in "Unsung Heroes: Fearless Men and Women who Changed the World" explores the many ways that these men and women had an extraordinary impact on life on our planet, and came from all four corners of the globe, all walks of life, and across many different disciplines. In "Unsung Heroes", elementary school children will find the stories of people who made incredible contributions to mankind. "Unsung Heroes" features Alan Turing, Asa Philip Randolph, Clara Barton, Nikola Tesla, Sojourner Truth, Patrick Steptoe, Robert Edwards, Wangari Maathai, Henrietta Lacks, Harvey Milk, and others. There are men and women of science and medicine, war and peace, politicians and peacemakers, social activists and resistance fighters, and more.
