One day, Norman would grow up and use his knowledge of agriculture to save the lives of two billion people. Two billion Norman changed the world Or was it Henry Wallace who changed the world? Or maybe it was George Washington Carver?

The Traveler’s Gift, a featured book selection of ABC’s Good Morning America, has been translated into nearly twenty languages and was on the New York Times bestseller list for seventeen weeks.

Andy has spoken at the request of four different United States presidents and toured military bases around the world, being called upon by the Department of Defense to speak to the troops.
