What is the difference between a hero and a celebrity? What does it mean to be a real-life hero? And why do heroes really matter?

T. A. describes meeting a deeply cynical girl in Ohio who inspired him to write the non-fiction book The Hero’s Trail. Hear the amazing story of a courageous girl named Wilma Rudolph. And learn about the origins of the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes.
