The author narrates the life of Carl Friedrich Gauss, the 18th century mathematician, from his prodigious childhood to his extraordinary achievements that earned him the title "Prince of Mathematics". Along the way, the author introduces her readers to a different culture, the era of small states in Germany where advancement on merits, such as Gauss’, was supported by enlightened rulers, competing for intellectual excellence and economic advantage through scientific progress in their small states. Based on extensive research of original and secondary sources, the author has created an historical narrative that will inspire young readers and even curious adults with a story full of human touch and personal achievement.
