Synopsis

Recently named 'Businessman of the Century' by Fortune magazine, Henry Ford is well known for his automotive accomplishments. His achievements extend far beyond this, including induction into five national halls of fame and donation of nearly one-third of his life's fortune to philanthropic efforts. Henry Ford: A Hearthside Perspective presents a unique view of the life of Henry Ford, looking at his homesites, historic landmarks, and charitable contributions as well as his relationships with family and friends. Through history, pictures, songs, and interpretive biography based on 16 years of research, author Donn P. Werling, director of the Ford Estate, offers the reader powerful insight into the life and thoughts of this remarkable man.

Through captivating anecdotes, this book offers a behind-the-scenes perspective of Henry Ford and his business, political, and personal activities such as: Many nationwide historical restorations and developments including: Dearborn, MI, Richmond Hill, GA, and Sudbury, MA (location of the Wayside Inn of Longfellow fame) The building and support of many churches and schools in the south, including Berry College and the Tuskegee Institute The beginning of the Ford Foundation which donates millions to philanthropic organizations and started with the development of the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, the largest indoor/outdoor museum Revival of country folk music and dance including his instrumental indirect role in establishing the Grand Old Opry The protection of wildlife and the environment, and the Migratory Bird Bill of 1913 and Treaty of 1918 Henry Ford: A Hearthside Perspective colorfully illustrates the message that, despite his mistakes and shortcomings, Henry Ford was one of the most important figures of the 20th century -- with his contributions to the advancement of technology, his contributions to society through restoration, and his grand generosity that affected and influenced the lives of many.
