Henry Ford

Henry Ford was one of the most misunderstood pioneers of the 20th century. Henry Ford: A Hearthside Perspective reveals a different side of the famous man. Werling, director of the Henry Ford Estate, University of Michigan-Dearborn, gained personal insight into Ford by researching the homesites, hearthsides, and communities where Ford had a strong influence.

Through captivating anecdotes, this book offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on Ford and his business, political, and personal activities. Werling concludes that despite his shortcomings, Ford positively affected the lives of many with his contributions to the advancement of technology, his contributions to society through restoration, and his donations (over one-third of Ford's income was donated to philanthropic causes).

In addition to covering the important accomplishments of Ford's life, Henry Ford: A Hearthside Perspective also discusses some of Ford's personal relationships, including those with his wife Clara, his son Edsel, and friends such as Thomas Edison.
