Ethan Allen has become legendary in the annals of the Revolutionary era, not least for his daring raid on Fort Ticonderoga in the predawn hours of May 10, 1775. But lost in his myth is the fact that this so-called Robin Hood of the Green Mountain settlers considerably enlarged his own family's holdings. Chronicling Allen's upward struggle from precocious, if not unruly, adolescent to commander of the largest American paramilitary force on the eve of the Revolution, Willard Sterne Randall unlocks a trove of new material, particularly in his gripping portrait of Allen as a British prisoner of war.

"This is the first full biography of Ethan Allen in half a century, and the only one to render him a psychologically complicated, fully flawed hero of the American Revolution."—Joseph J. Ellis

"Nuanced, multidimensional ... Randall's book feels like it's charting territory as unexplored as the acreage that Allen ... snapped up."—LATimes
