Alexander Graham Bell
By age sixteen he was a piano virtuoso; by age twenty-one he was a faculty member of the University of Edinburgh; by age twenty-eight he had invented the telephone.
From Scotland to Canada to the United States, Alexander Graham Bell was a visionary who contributed to essentially every technological innovation of his time. His lifelong fascination with voice and sound and his tireless efforts on behalf of the deaf and mute truly made him one of the greatest scientists and humanitarians of the nineteenth century.
Leonard Everett Fisher's straightforward account of Bell's life will serve as a wonderful introduction to young readers of the impact Bell and his many inventions continue to have on daily life, more than one hundred years later.
