Harold "Indiana" Hannebaum, an Idaho inventor now in his 80s, has written his remarkable life story. Mr. Hannebaum's inventions number in the hundreds and include the rotary lawnmower, which he did not patent, and the Carousel glass fireplace, which he did patent. The King of Metamora covers the period 1910 to 1920 and tells of his early years on his father's Indiana farm where he first began inventing.
Hannebaum's engaging adventures give us a glimpse into life on the landscapes of Indiana and Idaho in the early twentieth century. With great humor and remarkable detail, he weaves the recollections of a lifetime of inventing into two memorable books.
