Summary
"Millions of people in a nation are necessary for a single genius to arise, millions of tedious hours must pass before a truly historic shooting star of humanity appears in the sky. Five vivid dramatizations of some of the most pivotal episodes in human history, from the Discovery of the Pacific to the composition of the Marseillaise, bringing the past to life in brilliant technicolor. Contents: Foreword, Flight into Immortality (Discovery of the Pacific by Pizarro), The Resurrection of George Frideric Handel, The Genius of a Night (The composition of the Marseillaise), The Discovery of El Dorado, The First Word to Cross the Ocean (the laying of the first trans-Atlantic telegraph cable)." --Publisher's website
