Fire of his Genius

Fire of his Genius

$ 3.00

Set against a dynamic period in history, the Fire of his Genius tells the story of Robert Fulton, a fiercely driven man whose invention of the steam boat opened up America's interior to waves of settlers, created and sustained industrial and plantation economies in the nation's heartland, and facilitated the destruction of the remaining Indian civilizations. Probing Fulton's genius but also laying bare the darker side of the man -- and the darker side of the American dream -- Kirkpatrick Sale tells an extraordinary tale with deftness, zest, and unflagging verve.
