"Symbols of America: A Lavish Celebration of America's Best Loved Trademarks and the Products They Symbolize, Their History, Folklore, and Enduring Mystique," by Hal Morgan is filled with interesting stories about some of the brands that have become a part of all of our lives. The information provided in this book reminds us that even the largest brands in the world started out as fledgling companies founded on a hope and a dream. There's something in this book for everyone.
