People of Destiny: Frank Lloyd Wright
Excerpt from Summary: "Frank Lloyd Wright was one of those rare individuals who know at a very early age the profession they will take as their lifework. It is said that even before his birth his mother dreamed of having a son who would become an architect. Why she chose this field has never been explained. It is certain, however, that she encouraged her son's seemingly natural interest in architecture. Even before he started to school, young Frank developed an awareness of natural forms. He amassed a collection of stones, not from an interest in geology, but from an interest in their never-ending variety of shapes. Later, his mother bought him a set of froebel blocks that gave the boy a sense of geometric form and dimension."
