Little Journeys to the Homes of American Statesmen

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 2 reviews)

Elbert Hubbard describes the homes of authors, poets, social reformers and other prestigious people, reflecting on how their surroundings may have influenced them. These short essays are part biography and part pontification of Hubbard's opinion of the subject and their oeuvre.

In this volume he reflects on the lives of American Statesmen, presidents like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, but also others like Alexander Hamilton, Henry Clay, or William H. Seward. (Summary by Lucy Perry, adapted by Ava)
