Summary
"Henry Agard Wallace is a paradoxical figure. The son of prominent Midwestern Republicans, he would grow up to become the emblematic leftist politician of his time. Well known as a shy man, uncomfortable in the world of politics, Wallace only narrowly missed becoming president of the United States. Beloved by millions as the Prophet of the Common Man, and reviled by millions more as a dangerous, misguided radical, Wallace lived in fractious times, and his historical legacy has become a topic of harshly polarized interpretations." "With American Dreamer, John C. Culver and John Hyde at last do justice to this infinitely complicated and controversial American. We are given Wallace the agriculturist of international renown, Wallace the prolific author, Wallace the groundbreaking economist, and finally Wallace the businessman whose company (eventually worth billions) paved the way for a worldwide agricultural revolution. But Culver and Hyde do more than investigate the complex personality of their subject. They bring to life with novelistic intensity the pivotal era in which Wallace lived."--BOOK JACKET
