  • "This is a book about the most admirable of human virtues - courage ... During 1954-1955, John F. Kennedy, then a U.S. senator, chose eight of his historical colleagues to profile for their acts of astounding integrity in the face of overwhelming opposition. These heroes include John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Thomas Hart Benton, and Robert A. Taft. [The book] now featuring a new Introduction by Caroline Kennedy, as well as Robert Kennedy's Foreword written for the 1964 memorial edition -- resounds with timeless lessons on the most cherished of virtues and is a powerful reminder of the strength of the human spirit. It is, as Robert Kennedy writes, "not just stories of the past but a book of hope and confidence for the future. What happens to the country, to the world, depends on what we do with what others have left us.-Back cover."
  • "Nominated for a Grammy Award in 1991, this recording features John F. Kennedy, Jr., reading his father's Pulitzer Prize-winning portrait of courageous Americans such as Daniel Webster, Sam Houston, and John Quincy Adams."
