Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0077045653, Hardcover)

This engaging series of leveled biographies brings history to life one dramatic story at a time. By focusing on poignant moments as well as public triumphs, Amazing Americans makes paragons of American history feel accessible and real.

The world of plants fascinated young George Washington Carver and he became known as the plant doctor before he was 12 years old. After finishing college, he spent his life teaching farmers how to grow larger crops and did research into the many ways to use peanuts, sweet potatoes, and soybeans. His inventions improved the lives of millions of people.
