Overview

A Symbol of Everything that is Right with America

America is filled with small towns-places you've never heard of, and probably never will. Yet it is these towns that are the lifeblood of this country. They don't have the financial might of New York City, or the glamor of Los Angeles. They don't have professional sports teams, or major research hospitals, or massive universities. Yet these small towns are, nevertheless, the feeder system that makes all those things possible. Their chief export? Decent, hardworking, and extremely talented people.

Clawson, Michigan is just such a town. Located north of Detroit, it is a bit over two-square miles in size, yet has produced an amazing number of truly remarkable and gifted people. The list ranges from professional and Olympic athletes, to major players in the arts and sciences, to military leaders.

In our first book, Two Square Miles: The Heroes of a Small Town, we chronicled over 50 such people. In this one, we cover 50 more.

Will there someday be a third book? Yes, most certainly. For the work of towns like Clawson, and thousands of others like it, is far from done.
