Barons of Newport
This book will take you back in time to the wondrous Gilded Age of America, where the barons of a new age were accumulating and spending wealth at a furious pace. You'll meet the world's richest families, the Vanderbilts and the Astors, and you'll follow the ostentatious lifestyles of the rich and famous four hundred. You'll visit their extravagant summer mansions, dance at their balls, dine at their dinners and indulge in their leisure activities. You'll tour Newport, Rhode Island, the mecca of this emerging class of aristocrats, where so much Gilded Age heritage has been preserved.
