Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Franklin’s accomplishments were so numerous and varied that they threaten to read like a laundry list. Yet Brands pours them into an engrossing narrative, and they leap to life on these pages as the grand story of an exceptional man. The First American is an altogether excellent biography.” Amazon.com, editorial review
