Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These character studies offer original insights into the personalities, the childhood experiences, the aspirations, and the shortfalls of our key American heroes. By debunking the myths that enshroud the famous, we can begin to see why these people really were great. We all know--or think we know--George Washington. He is the stern-faced man in a famous portrait or in the famous painting of his crossing the Delaware River. He is the Father of Our Country. The real George Washington was an entirely different person. This biography paints a full-bodied picture of the man beneath the myth. We are introduced to a warmhearted, generous man, who loved the company of friends and had a weakness for fine things in life. We meet a brash youth, who had to learn restraint before he could become a great leader. And we understand the roots of his ambition to achieve an eternal place in our history. Archival reproductions are punctuated by Greg Copeland's stirring original art and a map showing battle sites of the Revolutionary War.
