Publisher's Summary

Lew Wallace gained world-wide fame as the author of the best-selling novel, Ben Hur. But did you know that as a boy, he played hooky from school? Governor, foreign minister, Civil War general, inventor, artist, and author, Lew Wallace spent his boyhood in the fields and rivers of his native Midwest. Join Lew as he rescues his baby brother from beneath the wheels of a carriage and entertains friends with portraits from his "magic pencil". Lew Wallace: Boy Writer features the story of the childhood of the young author from the age of five until the age of 19, and ends with a brief summary of his adult achievements.


What the Critics Say
