The incredible story behind the cofounder of Noble & Noble and Barnes & Noble comes to life in this compelling biography of G. Clifford Noble. From his humble beginnings as a poor country boy to the co-owner of what would someday become the most prestigious book store chain in the country, The Noble Legacy celebrates the life of a true American icon. Already a budding entrepreneur at age twelve, Noble grew up in Massachusetts in the aftermath of the Civil War. Dedicated to his religious faith and driven to succeed, he graduated from Harvard with distinction and moved to New York City in the fall of 1886. His first job as a clerk at a small wholesale and retail bookstore ignited his passion for bookselling. Noble s amazing business sense propelled him to continued success, culminating in the establishment of two premier book companies, Barnes & Noble and Noble & Noble. Noble s granddaughter, Betty Noble Turner, pens a touching tribute to her grandfather and artfully captures his legacy. She also offers a historical dissertation on the origin and challenges of Noble s two companies, as well as a loving life story about the man himself.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Betty N.
