American Story:A Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things

Bob Dotson

Today Show correspondent Dotson has crisscrossed the country for decades, interviewing ordinary people who have done extraordinary things for his award-winning segment, “American Story with Bob Dotson." Dotson compiles stories that didn't make it on air and catches up on those that did, like the truck driver who taught microsurgery, the Navy cook who became the first African American to earn a rank, and the man who used his lottery winnings to finance the college education of neighborhood kids. For fans of Tom Brokaw and Charles Kuralt.
