Description
 
Many of the figures who have shaped our country’s history have receded from public memory. The editor asked 50 accomplished personalities from a diverse range of interests to each select a person from the “Amer. Nat. Bio.” that they felt deserved more attention. Here, the biographies of these forgotten figures appear alongside the comments of their selectors. We discover the man who inspired Sherwin Nuland to become a doctor & the writer Jacques Barzun considers America’s first cultural critic. We learn of the poetry recited to Henry Louis Gates, Jr., as a boy, & the book Andy Rooney deems “better than the Bible & easier to understand.” “Presents the architects of our country’s past through the eyes of the architects of its future.” Illustrations.
