Two Filipino scientists discover the powerful toxins found in the Conus family of sea shells. Their discovery was a breakthrough in modern medicine and continues to save millions of lives.
Modern Heroes for the Filipino Youth are true stories of Filipinos from all walks of life who chose to make a difference. There are currently 24 titles in this inspirational series.
ALEXINE: I read this entire series in one sitting and it was invigorating! These aren't the usual heroic stories you read online, this is a meatier selection which won't get the same viral interest. I highly recommend the entire series for the family.
