64 page biography of Noah Webster. Fairly uninteresting black and white illustrations. This is at least partly due to the subject matter, Noah Webster wrote spellers and dictionaries, he didn't have cool apparatus, like Benjamin Franklin.

The narrative tries to help the reader relate by describing, a bit too speculatively, the subjects feelings. It gives a reasonable outline of Noah Webster's life. He was rather young to be a "Founding Father", he was still in college during the War for American Independence and didn't drop out to be an officer with nearly the same enthusiasm as Alexander Hamilton.

Still, definitely worth the read if you know as little about Noah Webster as I do.
