Description
A scholar and gourmand who sold books to Patriots and Loyalists alike, Henry Knox was one of the American Revolution's most unlikely heroes. In this biography for readers up to 12, Knox is incensed by the Boston Massacre, and later pledges his services to George Washington and the Continental Army. When Boston is captured by the British, Knox volunteers to retrieve a massive amount of heavy artillery from Fort Ticonderoga—some 300 miles away, over frozen rivers and mountains—to give the rebels the weapons they need to break the siege. The acrylic-on-wood paintings by the illustrator of Look to the Stars and Abraham Lincoln Comes Home are realistic yet folksy, bringing the historical personages to life.

"What a superb, vivid, rendition of one of the great adventures in American history. A delight for all ages."—David McCullough
