This early work by Eva March Tappan was originally published in 1916 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Makers of Many Things' is an educational book for children that details the interesting production methods of everyday products such as matches and shoes. Eva March Tappan was born on 26th December 1854, in Blackstone, Massachusetts, United States. Tappan began her literary career writing about famous characters from history in works such as 'In the Days of William the Conqueror' (1901), and 'In the Days of Queen Elizabeth' (1902). She then developed an interest in children's books, writing her own and publishing collections of classic tales.
