About this item

Golden Kite Award for Nonfiction

Websters American Dictionary is the second most popular book ever printed in English. But who was that Webster? Noah Webster (17581843) was a bookish Connecticut farm boy who became obsessed with uniting America through language. He spent twenty years writing two thousand pages to accomplish that, and the first 100 percent American dictionary was published in 1828 when he was seventy years old. This clever, hilariously illustrated account shines a light on early American history and the life of a man who could not rest until hed achieved his dream. An illustrated chronology of Websters life makes this a picture perfect bi-og-ra-phy [noun: a written history of a person's life].
