The Scientific American Boy

by A. Russell Bond

Revealing glimpse into lifestyles past, an opportunity to touch 1800's Americana in a personal way. A window on great grandfather's boyhood. Living history. earlier industrial age thinking exposed. A time not long gone by. Much more factual and realistic than Tom Sawyer. The cornerstones of now diminishing American driven ingenuity. Science and engineering in facinating simplicity. A time lost to crass and over stimulated capitalistic greed. Thought driven by pineering conditions - Greater than you think. bwm
