The Inventor And The Tycoon

The Inventor And The Tycoon

A tale from the great American West, this popular history unspools a story of passion, wealth, and sinister ingenuity.

Set in California during its frontier decades, The Tycoon and the Inventor interweaves Muybridge's quest to unlock the secrets of motion through photography, an obsessive murder plot, and the peculiar partnership of an eccentric inventor and a railroad tycoon Leland Stanford.
