The legendary life and entrepreneurial vision of Fred Harvey helped shape American culture and history for three generations-from the 1880s all the way through World War II-and still influence our lives today in surprising and fascinating ways. Now award-winning journalist Stephen Fried re-creates the life of this unlikely American hero, the founding father of the na- tion's service industry, whose remarkable family business civilized the West and introduced America to Americans. Appetite for America is the incredible real-life story of Fred Harvey-told in depth for the first time ever-as well as the story of this country's expansion into the Wild West of Bat Masterson and Billy the Kid, of the great days of the railroad, of a time when a deal could still be made with a handshake and the United States was still uniting. As a young immigrant, Fred Harvey worked his way up from dishwasher to household name. ^~Author: Stephen Fried ^~Publisher: Bantam Books ^~ISBN: 9780553804379 ^~Paperback: 518 pages, 6" x 9".
