BeschreibungDoing Good: Inspirational Stories of Everyday Americans at Home and at Work is a collection of profiles of people who have found a way to make a difference--serving their communities, helping friends and family, improving the quality of life and work for colleagues--doing what they can to make the world a better place. A few of them are famous or prominent, but most of them not known outside their own communities, including: * The modern-day Helen Keller. * The widowed great-grandmother who lives alone in the Rocky Mountains and passes along her outdoors skills to children. * The college professor who spends his summers teaching poor Appalachian kids to use computers. * Top business executives using their time, money and skills to make a difference. * The Big City Forest man. * The best pickup basketball player in America. * The senior citizens who help other 'silver surfers' lean to use the Internet. * The lady brewer. * The man who invented e-mail. These stories and more provide lessons for all Americans in how to work, how to play and how to live our lives to the fullest.
