KIRKUS REVIEW

Recommended for boys feeling their way into science, this is a detailed account of American inventors and inventions as absorbing as any whodunit. Beginning with the reorganization of American Patent laws and ending with American entry into World War I, this tells of the cotton-gin, and the steamboat, the telegraph and the telephone, compressing the whole genius of American invention into one volume.
