Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Revolutionary War JOURNAL OF WILLIAM THOMAS EMERSON is now in paperback with an exciting repackaging!

On an early summer morning in 1774, William Emerson, on the run from his abusive foster parents, awakens to a dusty-faced stranger who has discovered his roadside bed. After hearing the boy's story, Mr. John Wilson--a writer for and organizer of the revolutionary cause--invites Will to accompany him into Boston. From that day forward, Will lives and works at the Seven Stars Tavern, gradually earning the trust of the colonial patriots who spend their time there. Through listening to tavern talk and closely observing Mr. Wilson, Will begins to grasp the importance of the colonial cause. But when conflicts between the citizens of colonial Boston and the British lobsterbacks escalate, Will is confronted with an impossible question--how much is he willing to sacrifice for the revolution and the freedom of his fellow citizens? In the pages of his diary, Will captures the patriotic spirit of the revolutionary period and the camaraderie that comes with fighting for a common cause.
