A bio. of the American dollar, giving us the story of its astonishing career through the wilds of Amer. history. Looks at the dollar over the years as a form of art, a kind of advertising, a reflection of Amer. attitudes, & a builder of empires. Shows how the dollar rolled out the frontier & peopled the plains; how it erected great cities; & how it expressed the urges of democracy & opportunity. Introduces us to the people who championed -- or ambushed -- the dollar over the years: pres. & statesmen, artists & engravers, pioneers & frontiersmen, bankers shady & upright, safe-blowers & crooks, & dreamers of every stripe. Delves into the folklore & the develop. of printing, investigates wild cats & counterfeiters, explains why a buck is a buck & how Dixie got its name. Illus.
