Overview

Did Monkeys Invent the Monkey Wrench?: Hardware Stores and Hardware Stories by Vince Staten

From the beloved author of Can You Trust a Tomato in January? comes a narrative romp through that great American institution--the hardware store. Behind every tool there is a useful history and a colorful anecdote. Vince Staten relates them all--from the origin of the hammer, chain saw, and drill bit (which built the vast Hughes fortune) to the role the shovel played in winning the West.
