Several prominent brother teams pioneered the American automobile industry: Horace and John Dodge, Charles and Frank Duryea, Francis and Freelan Stanley, five Studebaker brothers and James and William Packard. However, the seven burly Fisher brothers were not only the most numerous of all the families, each one extensively involved in developing the famous "Body by Fisher" brand and subsequently General Motors; they were also among the most successful of the automobile titans. They amassed great wealth during their extensive careers and even more so following their retirement from the automobile industry. They were so wealthy that it is rumored they lost $3 billion in the 1929 stock market crash, yet managed to salvage $500 million from the economic carnage. The Fisher story is one of brotherhood; a close-knit family whose vision, perseverance, determination and commitment to quality made it fabulously wealthy. 1. Language: English.

A brilliant writer and a fiery social critic, Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850) was perhaps the most famous American woman of her generation. Outspoken and quick-witted, idealistic and adventurous, she became the leading female figure in the transcendentalist movement, wrote a celebrated column of literary and social commentary for Horace Greeley's newspaper, and served as the first foreign correspondent for an American newspaper. While living in Europe she fell in love with an Italian nobleman, with whom she became pregnant out of wedlock. In 1848 she joined the fight for Italian independence and, the following year, reported on the struggle while nursing the wounded within range of enemy cannons. Amid all these strivings and achievements, she authored the first great work of American feminism: Woman in the Nineteenth Century. Despite her brilliance, however, Fuller suffered from self-doubt and was plagued by ill health. John Matteson captures Fuller's longing to become ever better, reflected by the changing lives she led. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Teresa DeBerry.
