Empire Builders (Softcover)

The Vision and Influence of Michigan's Early Entrepreneurs

Empire Builders cover

Empire Builders is the remarkable story of how Michigan's early entrepreneurs led the United States to global prominence in cars, chemicals, and corn flakes. Henry Ford, Billy Durant, Herbert Dow, and Will Kellogg all failed before they succeeded—and sometimes even after they succeeded. Yet they shared a stubborn persistence to invent and market something that would make life simpler for millions of people.

At a time when Americans seem confused about their past, Empire Builders provides readers with triumphant heroes, dramatic stories, and a useful heritage to study and learn.

Empire Builders is published by Rhodes and Easton (1-800-706-4636) in conjunction with the Mackinac Center for Public Policy (1-800-22-IDEAS).
