by Greg Grandin. A wonderful non-fiction book about Henry Ford and the plantation he started in the Amazon in 1927. A book about America, capitalism, consumerism, unions, New Deal, cleanliness, war, and about the untameable Amazon. (and soy beans....) I loved the book, Henry Ford is complex, difficult man, a genius and a very stupid man in one. And the writer, he wrote a non-fiction book that reads like an exciting novel. And wow! how some of the decisions made by one man in the twenties still effect us today.
