LOST MEN OF AMERICAN HISTORY

Here's a book we can thoroughly recommend -- for its fresh and entertaining historical material. For this cavalcade of ignored, unknown, slighted, Americans is curious and sometimes starting, and the infectious collection runs from pleasant imbeciles to unorthodox prophets and original patterns of genius. The creators of the log cabin, inventors, agitators, crusaders, literary rebels, transportation and agricultural pioneers, early unionisers, odd militarists, side streets of education, railroad fanatics, etc., etc. Extravaganza that is stimulating, that lights up shadowy corners of our history.
