Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1951, this biography of the childhood years of Americas ninth president, William Henry Harrison, details the boyhood adventures and character of young Tippecanoe prior to his assumption of the highest office. The story opens with young Harrisons rousing rescue of sister Sally from drowning when he was just seven, followed soon after by an account of Harrisons quick thinking as he saved his uncle from bleeding to death following an accident. The famous battle at Tippecanoe is also reviewed, as are many more events and actions that young history buffs will enjoy.
