Synopsis: "Es una historia sobre el espíritu empresarial, el riesgo, y el trabajo duro, y sobre saber a dónde quieres ir y estar dispuesto a hacer lo que sea necesario para llegar allí. Es una historia sobre creer en tu idea, incluso cuando tal vez otras personas no creen en ella, y sobre apoyarte en tus mejores fortalezas". - Sam Walton

Conozca a un genuino héroe popular americano proveniente del mero centro del corazón de los Estados Unidos: Sam Walton, un hombre que convirtió una única tienda de pueblo en Walmart, el negocio minorista más grande del mundo. Rey mercantil indiscutible de finales del siglo XX, Walton nunca perdió el toque de hombre común. Genuinamente modesto, pero siempre seguro de sus ambiciones y sus logros, Walton comparte su extraordinaria biografía con un estilo sincero y directo, y en sus propias palabras inimitables recuenta la historia de la inspiración, el corazón y el optimismo que lo impulsaron a alcanzar el sueño americano.
