What is one of America’s most influential exports? It’s not machinery, electronics, or oil — it’s heroes. For centuries, Americans have labored in foreign lands, spreading the Gospel, battling evil, and cataloging the glories of creation through exploration.

Join noted historian and storyteller Bill Potter for twelve exciting, true tales of missionaries, martyrs, soldiers, athletes and explorers. What do these men and women have in common? They all teach important lessons through their lives, and they all showed heroism in foreign lands — from Ecuador to the moon!
