A manuscript hidden for decades shows Colonel Harland Sanders was more than an entrepreneur with a special fried chicken recipe and a vision that helped create the fast-food industry.

It reveals that the white-jacketed man had his eye on another lucrative market - celebrity food books.

The recent discovery of the unpublished text shows that while Sanders was helping build Kentucky Fried Chicken into a global brand, he was recording his life and love of food for the world.

The typewritten manuscript from the mid-1960s was found recently
by an employee rummaging through KFC's archives.

The Louisville-based company plans to offer up Sanders' writings
on the Internet.

The approximately 200-page document is full of homespun anecdotes and life lessons.

It also includes a helping of his favorite personal recipes.
