520    "Noah Webster may be best remembered the enormous and 
       ambitious task of writing his famous dictionary, but for 
       him, this accomplishment was a means to an end. His true 
       goal was to streamline the language spoken in our newly 
       formed country so that it could be used as a force to 
       bring people together and be a source of national pride. 
       Though people laughed at his ideas, Webster never doubted 
       himself. In the end, his so-called foolish notions 
       achieved just what he had hoped.  Here, in the only 
       account of Noah Webster for teens, the seasoned biographer
       Catherine Reef guides us through Webster's remarkable life,
       from boyhood on a Connecticut farm through the fight for 
       American independence to his days as a writer and 
       political activist who greatly influenced our Founding 
       Fathers and the direction of the young United States"--
