Description

On this episode of Our American Stories, the History Guy tells us the story of the youngest-ever winner of the Nobel Prize for literature, Rudyard Kipling, and how he survived a difficult childhood to go on to become one of the most celebrated authors of his day, penning such classics as "The Jungle Book" and "Just So Stories.” Pete Coors tells the story of Coors Banquet beer and how the story began with a German immigrant living in a Colorado mining town. Bill Bryk brings us the story of the an ingenious inventor who went from inventing naval mine detonators to one of the top 5 toys of the 20th century... and all because he was unimpressed by a store's window display.
