The Hero's Trail


This summer you read The Hero's Trail. Please leave a comment telling which one hero in the book made the greatest impression on you. Write at least three sentences using good punctuation, spelling, and capitalization. You are welcome to use your book to refresh your memory.

Personally, I believe that one of the most impressive heroes is Anne Frank. Her courage and her ability to look for the best in people is remarkable. She is a role model for anyone who goes through difficult experiences.

  3. i believe that Wilma Rudolph was very fascinating to have polio and come back and be one of the best runners in the world! all of the gold medals sh won and everything was just incredible. anyone to be able to do that had to have god with them and watching over them the whole time! That's what i thought about the story of Wilma Rudolph.

  5. I think that Sherwin Long shows a lot of courage
    and heart jumping into a swimming pool even though he couldnt swim. Just to save his brother. So thats why I like Sherwin Long.

  13. I think Wilma Rudolph was a great hero she showed such an example of faith like when she walked into the church with no leg braces on now that took faith and I think faith makes a true hero

  14. I think that Wilma Rudolph is important,because she tried to walk again.I think that having scarlet fever ,pneumonia,and polio was hard on her.Finally she became the fastest lady runner in the world.

  15. Carol Heiss is an ice skater that started at age ten. But a tragedy
    happened...she crashed in to another skater! Her leg was cut. It was awful and she couldn't bear to put her skates on again. But she conquered her fears and nearly a decade later, in 1956, Carol skated her way to the world champion! Also, Tenley Albright was another courageous skater who fought childhood polo.

  16. My favorite hero is Wilma Rudolph. Even though she had a hurt leg she became an amazing athlete.
    If that had happened to me I would not become the fastest person in the world.

  23. I think Ruby Bridges showed courage when she was the first black girl to enter an all white school. She and her mom had to be escorted by federal marshals through an angry mob of people. If I were her, I would have been scared to death, but Ruby Bridges showed courage by just walking through the crowd of people.

  24. I personally think Charles Eastman is my favorite hero because he learned to hunt with a bow and arrow. He got taken away from his tribe, but after all he had been through he learned how to speak another language and he became a nationally known writer and speaker. That's why I think he's my hero!

  32. I think Esther is a hero because she had the courage to stand up for people. A law was passed and the Jews were going to be killed. But Esther was brave enough to go before the King and tell him that he was being tricked by Haman,the King's royal advisor. Thanks to Esther,the Jews were saved. That's why Esther is a hero.

  43. Ruby Bridges going to an all white school made the most impact on me. It's just so amazing that she had to go through a lot of angry people just to go to school. It's bad enough going to a new school
    I can not imagine doing that.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ruby Bridges going to an all white school must had been hard. It's so sad that she had to go through a crowd of people just to go to school. It's bad enough having not having any friends.

  45. I strongly belive Sherwin Long is truely one of the best heros ever. He saved his six year old brother from drownding in the deep end of the pool,when he himself at the age of nine could not swim.Still he rescued his brother from death and that is why I beleive Sherwin Long is a true hero.

    My favorite hero from the book is Glenn Cunningham. I admire him because of his determination and faith. He believed in himself and not only did he walk again he set the record for the fastest mile. He is a true hero to me.

  49. My favorite hero from the book was Wilma Rudolph. I think she is my favorite hero because everybody thought she couldn't walk except her. She took her brace off then stood up by herself and walked to her mothers arms. Then she went to the Olympics and won three medals. Thats why I think Wilma Rudolph is my favorite hero from the book.

  50. I think Wilma Rudolph has tons of perseverance.
    I think it would take tons perseverance to overcome:scarlet fever,pneumonia, and polio.
    It is amazing that she went on to win Olympic medals despite being so sick.
    That's why she's my favorite hero from The Hero's Trail.
