More than just a biography this books give a complete picture into, not only the life and times of Betsy Ross, but a complete picture of what life was like during her lifetime. The author includes an amazing amount of detail on members of the family going back many generations. She also described in detail the trades of the time, what it was like to walk the streets, the political feelings, the Quaker faith, architecture and so on in such detail that it give you probably one of the most complete works on 18th century history I've ever read (or listened to). The one draw back is that you have to listen intently as she talks about family members- for the simple fact there are many of them and they come and go throughout the story.

I was prepared for this book because I knew that there is very little historical information about Betsy Ross and her making of the flag. BUt I enjoy history and I thought this was a good story of the history of her family and life in Philadelphia at the time.
