Publisher's Summary

"We've done more than our share to see you right, but you're a Hershey, a true son of a dreamer," Milton's uncle Abraham said. "You'll never stick with anything long enough to make it work for you." Milton gulped. He'd already suspected that his relatives had given up on him succeeding as a candy maker, but the words still stung.

When Milton Hershey's famous Hershey Bars debuted in 1905, few people knew of the hard work, dedication, and sacrifice preceding the triumph. Debt, lack of support, and fatigue had been constant companions for the famous chocolatier and philanthropist - a man with a fourth-grade education. Despite comparisons to his wandering father, Milton never gave up. Learning from his mistakes, he spent a lifetime creating sweet things to eat - first caramel, then chocolate. As his company soared, Milton used his wealth to care for others, founding a town for Hershey workers, a school for children in need, and a foundation dedicated to education, culture, and health care (1857-1945).

Heroes of History is a unique biography series that brings the shaping of history to life with the remarkable true stories of fascinating men and women who changed the course of history. The stories of Heroes of History are told in an engaging narrative format, where related history, geography, government, and science topics come to life and make a lasting impression. This is a premier biography line for the entire family.

    Story
    "Inspirational"

    The history of Hershey is so good! I didn't know anything about the company before listening to this book. He was such a good man and a great example of what we should be inspired to do with our money, time and talents. Another inspirational story done by this company. I enjoyed ever minute of this story.

    Story
    "Great book, great life and outstanding soul"

    i enjoyed the book thoughtout, at certain times i felt it went too fast and i wanted more detail, but i am used to much longer biographies and this was a change, a straight to the point summary of his life and most relevant events in Milton's life.

    Story
    "Should be a required read"

    I believe this book should be a required read fir every junior in high school. It is a reality check to all human beings that even though you work hard, you don't always succeed UNTIL one day something clicks.

    Well written and I throughly enjoyed learned about Me Hersey and all is contrition seven today!
