Telling the story of success

Don Surber explains the reasoning behind his new book "Exceptional Americans."
Yes, American history isn't perfect. I get that. But American history was more than slavery and Indian Wars. When it comes to race, our nation has tried to overcome prejudices, biases and fears that have haunted man since the dawn of civilization. American history is the story of success. I wanted to write a book that was positive about our country. I think I succeeded.

It is startling to some of us who know a lot (personal estimate--not verified) just how little we know.

The book, the essays in it and the essays as yet not published in book form, may very well be a reincarnation of Paul Harvey's "The REST of the Story" segments.
