FAMILIES by Karl Schriftgiesser


Email this review


The histories of famous and important American families: Adams, Beechers, James, Lees, Drews and Barrymores, Astors and Vanderbilts, Guggenheims, du Ponts, Rockefellers and Roosevelts, make interesting juxtaposition. All generations to date are included, with achievements and biographies of outstanding members as well as those not so well known to round out the pictures of the families as a whole. Readably handled material, that doesn't concentrate on one type of family.
