Summary

Summary

Pro football player, bestselling author, entrepreneurial millionaire . . . these successful people all have one thing in common: They were all homeschooled as children. Inside, you'll discover their inspiring stories, along with the stories of a dozen other homeschooling "graduates" who have achieved success on many levels. In addition, you'll meet 12 younger people already well on their way to personal success. Inside you'll find: • Robin Lee Graham, at 16, became the youngest person to sail around the world • Jedediah Purdy, Yale law student and author of For Common Things • Kitty Gilmore, Arkansas State Trooper and U.S. Marshal • Rikki Scandora, homeschooling student and naturalist "This beautiful book resonates with a feeling for how things really happen. It will make you smile, stimulate your spirit, chase away your fears. Read it today! Then read it as often as you need to to revive your courage. What a gift!"--John Taylor Gatto, former New York State Teacher of the Year and author of The Underground History of American Education "Once again, Linda Dobson has blazed a trail for us all. This book confirms that honoring children, families, and communities is, in the end, the greatest testament to homeschooling's overall success."--Richard J. Prystowsky, professor of English and Humanities, Irvine Valley College, and editor of Paths of Learning "This is not a how-to book. It's better. It's a 'how-it-was-done book.' These exclusive profiles of incredible, homeschooled teens and young adults prove to the world that homeschooling works!"--Elizabeth Kanna, editor of Homeschool.com
