Book DescriptionAn inspiring collection of over 100 of the greatest speeches in American historyWhat better way to introduce kids to the power of the spoken word than with this fantastic collection of some of the greatest speeches in American history? From Lincoln's unforgettable Gettysburg Address and Martin Luther King's valiant "I Have a Dream" speech to lesser known orations such as George Vest's "Eulogy on a Dog" and Lou Gehrig's speech describing himself as "the luckiest man on the face of the earth," this vibrant book introduces kids to Americans who spoke out and made a difference in their world and ours. They'll meet such brilliant orators as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, an advocate for women's rights who delivered her masterpiece "The Solitude of Self" in 1892, and 10-year-old Samantha Smith of Maine, who was invited to Russia after writing a heartfelt letter to Soviet Premier Yuri Andropov, along with Sojourner Truth; Red Cloud, Lakota Sioux Chief; Mother Jones; Mark Twain; and many others.
