Book Commodore Vanderbilt

Download or read book Commodore Vanderbilt written by Arthur D. Howden Smith and published by Cosimo, Inc.. This book was released on 2007-06-01 with total page 401 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Corneel flung up that lion head of his, a mingling of amusement and resentment mirrored in his frosty eyes. "Steamship, gal," he corrected. "Steamboats don't go to sea. The Prometheus is the sightliest craft in these waters. I didn't see her beat in England, either. And I'll tell ye something else. She's the fust ocean steamer ever built with one man's money." A flame of high egotism ennobled his conqueror's face. "She's Cornelius Van Derbilt's, as she puts to sea. No other man owns ary dollar of her. She's mine, b'God, mine!" -from Chapter IV His name has not endured like those of his contemporaries, but Arthur D. Howden Smith was, in the early years of the 20th century, a tremendously popular author of pulp fiction on a par with E.E. "Doc" Smith and Edgar Rice Burroughs. And the same boisterous enthusiasm that made his adventure tales of pirates and Vikings so rip-roaring readable bursts forth from his nonfiction as well. Here, in this 1927 work, Howden Smith tells the story of the life of American railroad and shipping magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt, from his family's roots in Holland to the last weeks before his death, when he clung to life with the pitbull tenacity that has taken him from a humble Staten Island childhood to wealth, fame, and power. Fun and feisty, this is a terrific work of classic biography. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Howden Smith's John Jacob Astor: Landlord of New York. ARTHUR DOUGLAS HOWDEN SMITH (1887-1945) was an enormously prolific and diverse writer, penning numerous short stories, biographies, and business studies, but he is best remembered for his many pulp novels, including Porto Bello Gold (a prequel to Treasure Island), The Dead Go Overside, The Doom Trail, Swain's Saga, and others.

  • Release : 2018-03-12
  • ISBN : 1612306136
  • Pages : 25 pages

Download or read book Vanderbilt s Biltmore written by Robert Wernick and published by New Word City. This book was released on 2018-03-12 with total page 25 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The original sketch for the Biltmore, George Washington Vanderbilt's grand estate in the mountains near Asheville, North Carolina, laid out plans for a modest Tuscan villa. But ambition quickly took wing. The house swelled to 225 rooms and became - until 2012 when it was topped by the home of a billionaire in Mumbai, India - the world's largest residence ever built for a private citizen. Here, in this short-form book, New York Times bestselling author Robert Wernick tells the story of the house that Vanderbilt built - from the gardens by Frederick Law Olmsted to the John Singer Sargent portraits that adorn its walls.

Book The Vanderbilt Women

Download or read book The Vanderbilt Women written by Clarice Stasz and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 1999 with total page 502 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lucius Beebe said that "The nearest thing to a royal family that has ever appeared on the American scene was the Vanderbilts … their vendettas, their armies of servitors, partisans and sycophants, their love affairs, scandals, and shortcomings, all were the stuff of an imperial routine." Stasz reveals new facts and insights into the fascinating lives of three generations of Vanderbilt women who dominated New York society from the middle of the eighteenth century through the twentieth. Of special interest are the discovery of unpublished letters and a pseudonymous lesbian novel that shed light on the complex character of the most currently famous Vanderbilt woman, Gloria Vanderbilt.

Book Summary of Tom Vanderbilt s Traffic

Download or read book Summary of Tom Vanderbilt s Traffic written by Everest Media, and published by Everest Media LLC. This book was released on 2022-05-23T22:59:00Z with total page 59 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 We are what we move. When we move from people who walk to people who drive, we experience a change in mode, and this affects how we view others. We view people who walk as harmless polluters, while people who drive are seen as invincible monsters. #2 The more we drive, the more we struggle to stay human. We become mute in traffic, and instead of complex vocabularies and subtle shifts in facial expression, we use basic signals that convey only the simplest of meanings. #3 Traffic is full of asymmetries in communication. You can see a lot of other drivers making mistakes, but you are less likely to see yourself doing so. This makes us desperate to communicate, and we often respond to other drivers by honking or giving them the middle finger. #4 We get angry in our cars to watch ourselves get angry. We are constantly constructing moral dramas in which we are the wronged victims, and the avenging hero.
