5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful view of a great inventor, 10 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Richard Trevithick - Giant of Steam (Hardcover)
When I got this book, I thought it would probably be some borinng review of what Richard Trevithicjk did in his spare time, but then I read it. It most certainly was not what I had imagined. The book is divided into various chapter, each discussing a time in his Life. It covers all the details, and begins with a brief bit about the Trevithick family in general, and moves right through his life, through Cornwall, England and South America right up to his death in Yorkshire. Anyone studying this magnificent engineer would be suprised by how much he did, not just the well known steam engines. It gives a very detailed account of important turning points, and explains the workings of his inventions. Overall, It was amazing. I would reccomend this to any budding historian and cornishman alike. Very much worth it.
