The sub-title says it all. This is a fun book that tells lots of little-known stories of the contributions that people from our region have made to our nation. Jeff Biggers is the author of several books of interest. His first was No Lonesome Road: The Prose and Poetry of Don West, which I co-edited with him. His most recent is Resistance: Reclaiming an American Tradition.
