Description

"Tracing Yankee ingenuity to its roots in colonial America, this book describes how early entrepreneurs responded to their environment by confronting challenge and risk while satisfying their needs and wants. They never realized that they were also engaging in a second revolution and establishing a unique new culture. Examples of prominent early Americans and their adaptations of special purpose machine tools are explored."show more
