"There are many books viewing the world through the eyes of politicians. This is an exciting book that views nineteenth-century America through the eyes of one of its most important publishers, George Palmer Putman. Putnam's publisher's eyes are amazing lenses because of his total involvement and patronage of the leading authors of his time. He toiled to give their voices greater exposure to the world". -- Patricia Schroeder, President & CEO, Association of American Publishers Inc.
