For the six million people who watch the Emmy Award-winning "American Story with Bob Dotson" on NBC's "Today Show," Bob Dotson's reports celebrate the inspirational stories of everyday Americans. Dotson has been crisscrossing the country for more than forty years--logging more than four million miles--in search of people who have quietly but profoundly changed our lives and our country for the better. Now, in "American Story," he presents a road map to the unsung heroes with thoughtful solutions to problems we all face, incredible ideas that work, and blueprints to living our dreams.

*The truck driver who taught microsurgery
*The man you've never heard of who has 465 profitable patents, second only to Thomas Edison

In the tradition of Tom Brokaw's "New York Times" bestseller "The Time of Our Lives," "American Story" is a deeply moving and endlessly fascinating alternative narrative for everyone who yearns to feel good about America.
