9781330039236: The Iron Hunter (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Iron Hunter

Cellini states that all men Of whatsoever quality they be, who have done anything Of excellence, or which may properly resemble excellence, ought, if they are per sons Of truth and honesty, to describe their life with their own hands; but they ought not to attempt SO fine an enterprise until they have passed the age Of forty. And so, he says, in a work like this there will always be found occasion for natural bragging.

Guizot wrote the history Of France after undertaking to tell it to his grandchildren as they sat about his knee.

When my friend, Emerson Hough, added his urging to that of my children and grandchildren, I first gave a serious thought to it. My father had a great prejudice against autobiographies. This be communicated to me congenitally.

Book Description:

Autobiography of Michigan's controversial governor from the Upper Peninsula.

From the Publisher:

Originally published in 1919, "The Iron Hunter" is the autobiography of one of Michigan's most influential and flamboyant historical figures: the reporter, publisher, explorer, politician, and twenty-seventh governor of Michigan, Chase Salmon Osborn (1860-1949). Making unprecedented use of the automobile in his 1910 campaign, Osborn ran a memorable campaign that was followed by an even more remarkable term as governor. In two years he eliminated Michigan's deficit, ended corruption, and produced the state's first workmen's compensation law and a reform of the electoral process. His autobiography reflects the energy and enthusiasm of a reformer inspired by the Progressive Movement, but it also reveals the poetic spirit of an adventurer who fell in love with Michigan's Upper Peninsula after traveling the world.

When my friend, Emerson Hough, added his urging to that of my children and grandchildren, I first gave a serious thought to it. My father had a great prejudice against autobiographies. This he communicated to me congenitally. I am not abnormally modest, I think, but I rebelled at the idea of writing about myself. It staged my ego too prominently. The fact is, said Mr. Hough, you unconsciously possess such a Gargantuan ego that you think you must conceal it by a false show of modesty. If you were really modest, you would not think of your ego, but would as willingly write of yourself as of another. Others supported him. And even with it all I feel like explaining the reason why I consented to try. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
