Summary
"The son of an Indiana governor, [Lew] Wallace became passionate about books and combat. He tried to win lasting fame through service for the Union cause on the battlefield during the Civil War, but instead won honor and glory through a quieter pastime : writing. His novel Ben-Hur : a tale of the Christ became one of the country's best loved books and was made into two successful Hollywood movies"--Jacket
