All-American XIII is the latest volume in Bruce Weber's annual survey of American legends. This year's theme is "speak up" and features an eclectic array of activists and actors, musicians and writers, newcomers and veterans who proudly share their unique - and out-spoken - visions. After all, free speech and diverse opinions are integral parts of the nation's heritage. This book is a tribute to all those who stand up to share their stories with the world - inspiring, entertaining - and at times challenging us. One thing is certain: when these compelling individuals speak up, you just have to listen.
