Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The subject of this well written biography is quite interesting. Andrew Carnegie is the stuff immigrant dreams are made off. Carnegie and his family emigrated to the United States when he was thirteen, and by age twenty-five the boy with no education was well one his way to becoming a wealthy man. Carnegie made millions and gave much of it away. His money built 2,811 libraries in the U. S. and around the world, in addition to funding organizations that promote world peace. This biography, part of the "Signature Lives" series, includes a timeline, glossary, further reading, additional sources, and source notes. It is nicely illustrated with both drawings and historic photographs. 2006, Compass Point Books, Ages 9 to 12.
