Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0077045483, Hardcover)

This engaging new 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.

Born with keen mechanical ingenuity, Eli Whitney took only eight days to create his engine or "gin". Almost overnight this simple yet ingenious device that separated cotton fiber from its seed made cotton big business in the South. American inventor and pioneer of the American system of mass production, Eli Whitney is an Amazing American.
