Description
Nearly a century after his death, every American knows something about P. T. Barnum and his many personae: we know him as a circus proprietor and founder of 'The Greatest Show On Earth, ' or we know him as the discoverer of General Tom Thumb, the midget, and the impresario of the renowned Swedish singer Jenny Lind, or perhaps we know him as a man addicted to practical jokes, whose most memorable pronouncement is supposed to have been 'there's a sucker born every minute.' In this colorful biography Arthur Saxon explores this 'legend in his own time, ' and presents a truer, less cliche-ridden picture of the man than anyone so far has done.
