By Greg Gordon. "Greg Gordon skillfully depicts A.B. Hammond's evolution from a young man seeking adventure and fortune into a full-blown robber baron with little concern for his workers, government regulations, or the public good.... This sobering yet fascinating tale is one sure to make historians rethink their analyses of western economic development." - Thomas R. Cox, author of The Lumberman's Frontier. Member Price: $26.95
