About Extraordinary People:
Extraordinary People is a decidedly incomplete compendium of excellence from all fields of endeavor. In brief bios, fascinating facts and illustrious illustrations, young readers will learn about 50 of history’s heroes and heroines, both unsung and sung, including:
• Evel Knievel, who jumped his motorcycle over 14 Greyhound buses
• The Iceman, the most well preserved human, found in the ice after 5,300 years
• Sam Patch, who jumped Niagara Falls for $75
• Helen Thayer, who walked to the North Pole alone
• Roy Sullivan, who was struck by lightning 7 times
These intriguing facts and hundreds more await curious readers, amateur historians, and anyone who aspires to the altogether extraordinary!
