This is a collection of sketches that chronicles the lives of great men belonging to the fields of science and industry. Smiles has amazingly captured the details of their hard work and development so as to put them as an enduring example for those that will follow. A work that brilliantly inspires has been presented here.
Industry puts an entirely new face upon the productions of nature. By labour man has subjugated the world, reduced it to his dominion, and clothed the earth with a new garment. The first rude plough that man thrust into the soil, the first rude axe of stone with which he felled the pine, the first rude canoe scooped by him from its trunk to cross the river and reach the greener fields beyond.
