From the dust jacket- "Inventors such as Harold Farnes Silver can be counted among the few souls who reshape their time and place. Silver belongs in the company of such figures as Cyrus McCormick and fellow Utah natives John Moses Browning and Philo Farnsworth, for he created machines that transformed whole industries. An entrepreneur as well, he built corporations on the foundation of his inventions. He then shared his success and business acumen through civic service that strengthened the communities with which he was affiliated, especially Denver, Colorado, where he made his home."
