Publishers Description 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Heroes Among Us?
Basics Blinded by the Lights Jan 14, 2006
Often blinded by the lights, bells and whistles of what appears to offer the best and brightest among us and often leaves the basics of character, judgement and morality the sad consequence of being left behind in the race for popularity, power and wealth. Seldom is loyalty among those qualities.
Like a Christmas tree usurping the real meaning that Christmas was meant to observe, commercialization is often the outcome praised and enviable that ignores the lasting quality of more altruistic ideals or grandeur of simplicity that formed the anchor for such celebrations.
The ability to keep foresight and hindsight allows the abilities of real heroes to maintain their luster despite the lures of momentary treasures and excitement of temporary thrills.
Inspiring and Motivating Jul 29, 2002
Heroes Among Us describes the lives of lesser-known heroes who found the courage to stand up and give their all for what they believed to be right. Some stood on battle fields, some in court rooms, some in mission fields. All made a difference in the world that we know today. Written by Congressman Jim Ryun, former Olympic runner, devout Christian and hero in his own right, Heroes Among Us will inspire and motivate readers to find the hero within themselves.
