Contemporary Heroes & Heroines

Contemporary Heroes & Heroines

by Ray Broadus Browne

Editorial Reviews

More heroes and heroines--or at least individuals that a surveyed group of librarians were asked most often about by young adult readers. Entries include a photograph, a description of the profiled person's vocation and achievements, and a quote when available. Among the 90 notables in Book II are Arthur Ashe, Pearl Buck, Marie Curie, Clarence Darrow, Mikhail Gorbachev, Stephen W. Hawking, Pope John XXIII, Ron Kovic, Malcolm X, Colin Powell, and Terry Waite. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
