History wasn't made by "historical people." It's not like Walt Disney, Buffalo Bill Cody or Howard Hughes wandered around looking for an opening to crawl out of the past and into the present. They were living, whole-heartedly, in the same constantly moving present that you and I now occupy.
Amelia Earhart's first "flight," for example, was made on a sled rushing down a ramp from the roof of her family's tool shed. Western hero, Wyatt Earp was once arrested for operating a "floating brothel." And when Country music legend, Dolly Parton, was a child, she would beg her mother to write down the words of little songs she made up, since she hadn't yet learned to write. Whether you plan to read them aloud or simply enjoy them yourself, just upload the book and take a few ten-minute peeks as some pretty fascinating lives.
