KIRKUS REVIEW

An astonishing and fascinating biography of an astounding character. One of the first munitions kings, Samuel Colt of Hartford, invented a repeating revolver at the age of fifteen, organized his own company shortly after, made his mark in the industrial world, when the Texas and Mexican border warfare put his revolver on the map. He stands out, seventy-five years later, as having inagurated social welfare in his plants. First rate reading, for anyone who likes a success story of a he man, with a sound American background. Should get a plus sale among your sporting books.
