The Forgotten Founding Father: Noah Webster's Obsession and the Creation of an American Culture


The Forgotten Founding Father: Noah Webster's Obsession and the Creation of an American CultureThe Forgotten Founding Father: Noah Webster's Obsession and the Creation of an American Culture by Joshua Kendall
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is about the life of Noah Webster. It tells much about the era that he lived. The book is interesting but gets bogged down every once in a while. I bought this book for $1.00 at the Borders going-out-of-business sale. It was originally marked at $26.95. The dictionary Webster wrote took many, many years. His was not the first "American" dictionary but as we all know it is by far the most famous. The author paints Webster as a person that is hard to like. He (Webster) has many negatives.

If you enjoy history and/or biography then you will enjoy this book.
