A Man of Salt & Trees: The Life of Joy Morton

$22.00

"A Man of Salt and Trees" is the first full-length biography of Joy Morton (1855-1934), founder of The Morton Arboretum - an internationally acclaimed outdoor museum of woody plants - and Morton Salt - the brand that for over a century has been a household name in the United States. Joy Morton's story begins in the pre - Civil War Nebraska Territory and concludes in the midst of the Great Depression in Chicago, the city in which he lived for over a half century. Using the voluminous correspondence of the Morton family, Ballowe tells the story of the Nebraska farm boy who grew up to be a small town banker who became a leading citizen of Chicago and Illinois and a major figure in the nation's economic and technological development during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
