This biography gives us the rags-to-riches story of Milton Hershey, whose idealistic sense of purpose created an immense financial empire, a town, and a legacy that lasts to this day. He perfected the production process of chocolate to create a stable, consistent bar with a long shelf life. Hershey was a progressive thinker who believed in capitalism as a means to higher goals. He built the world’s largest chocolate factory and a utopian village for his workers in rural Pennsylvania, and used his own fortune to keep his workers employed during the Great Depression. In addition, he secretly willed his fortune to a boys’ school and orphanage, both of which now control a vast endowment. “The fascinating story of a uniquely American visionary.” Illustrations.
