The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Only a story like this, which gets inside the mind and heart of the characters, can give young Americans an understanding of their history. From the faith of a Yankee peddler at the beginning of the Revolution, from the sympathy of Thomas Jefferson, from the confidence of spirited, lively Catherine Greene, Eli Whitney drew the strength to travel the long road of achievement. But this story make it vividly clear that the spark of genius within the man himself was needed to create the tools that changed the face of America. 

Fritz Kredel’s clear and simple illustrations add beauty and distinction to this moving story.
