George Stephenson Father of Railways by Ada Barrett 1948 Dust Jacket 293 pages  Stamped review copy.
HERE IS a vivid, true story that reads like a piece of fiction-the story of George Stephenson's struggle against poverty, against ignorance, against professional critics who ridiculed his ideas; it is the exciting, true-life tale of a poor youth who became the friend of Kings and the idol of coal-miners ... the fascinating, rags-to-riches story of the persevering genius who invented the steam locomotive.
Although Stephenson reached the age of 18 without even knowing the alphabet, his later life was a swift succession of mechanical triumphs that eventually won for him the title in England of "The Great Engineer."
George Stephenson changed the shape of life for all of us, and here, for the first time since 1868 is his story-a success story in the fullest sense, more spectacular for its humble beginnings.
