Lady on the Hill: How Biltmore Estate Became an American IconАвтор: Howard E. Covington, The Biltmore Company Чтец: Mirron Willis Аудиокнига
This is the story of Biltmore Estate's transformation from a financial drain for George Vanderbilt and his heirs -- banker David Rockefeller called it a"a white elephant" — into an unparalleled example of private preservation and the most important working asset of the western North Carolina travel industry. No one gave Biltmore's future a chance, but George Vanderbilt's grandson, William A. V. Cecil, persevered over thirty-five years, and his determination, creativity and vision produced an enterprise whose profits he used to preserve his patrimony.
