Richard Snow, "I Invented the Modern Age: The Rise of Henry Ford"

From the acclaimed popular historian Richard Snow comes a fresh, meticulous, and entertaining account of Henry Ford, the Model-T, and the remaking of American industry in the early 20th century.


Through effort and imagination, Ford transformed the nation and became the most famous and richest man in America. The car altered our nation in a decade and made Ford a national hero—but that’s not the end of the story.


Filled with scene and incident, character and dialogue, Richard Snow’s book presents us with the young, unknown, industrious, and altogether resourceful young man rising in the years when people were vying to build the machine that would define the dawning age in America.



RICHARD SNOW worked at American Heritage magazine for nearly four decades and was its editor-in-chief for seventeen years. He is the author of several books, among them two novels and a volume of poetry. Snow has served as a consultant for historical motion pictures—including Glory—and has written for documentaries and award-winning TV movies.
