This is a fine little book, originally written in 1867, just years after the invention of the home sewing machine. While it doesn't cover the early attempts at making a sewing machine (see book by Grace Rogers Cooper for that), it picks up the story with Elias Howe in 1839 and continues through the end of the lawsuits and eventual collaborations of multiple inventors (including Isaac Singer). It reads much like a novel without going into details of the machine's operations. This makes it an excellent book for anyone interested in biographies, including young people. The book consists of 31 pages of story and then a number of pages showing early machines. It is well written (although in the 19th century style) and was a fun read.
