About the Author:

CRISPIN BOYER lives in Xcalak, a small fishing village in Mexico, where he writes about history, wildlife, and technology. He and his wife live with their flock of hens, a turkey, two roosters, and a guard goose.

His 2013 cover story for National Geographic Kids magazine, Return of the Missing Lynx, won an Eddie Award for Best Single Article, Youth/Teen. The American Library Association chose his book This or That? as one of 2015's top picks for reluctant young-adult readers.
From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"...an exceptionally diverse gallery of inspirational role models." -- Booklist

"Once again, National Geographic provides an exemplary pictorial history, this time of various types of heroes and legends...This is an excellent choice, particularly for the reluctant reader, as it could be a starting point in inspiring interest in topics readers may want to pursue further." —School Library Connections
