Summary
This book aims to show how America's heroes reveal the kind of people we are as well as interpret the American experience. The author believes that not only the hero himself, but also his lifestyle, offers the key. The heroes examined include Captain John Smith, Douglas Fairbanks, William Byrd, George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Sergeant York, Woody Guthrie, Daniel Boone, Dan Beard, Horatio Alger, Henry Ford, Buffalo Bill, Mike Hammer, Paul Bunyan, Superman, Walt Whitman and Bob Dylan. The author also deals with heroes of color (Native American and African-American), and views Mickey Mouse as a germinal electronic hero
