Summary
American Trailblazers celebrates a group of lesser-known Americans who left an enduring imprint on their time through their milestone innovations or inspirational accomplishments. These men and women come from every period in our nation's history and all walks of life: from humanitarians, adventurers, and entertainers, to political figures, inventors, and entrepreneurs. However, what really makes these people worthy of note are their memorable life stories. Many of these individuals could be deemed heroes, others colorful iconoclasts. One or two might even be considered controversial, although their attainments were important nonetheless. The characters are organized into two groups representing the fields in which they excelled: Culture and Society, or Science and Industry
