Publisher's Summary

Sterling North, author of the award-winning children's classic Rascal, tells the tale of the Father of Our Country and how he became one of the greatest leaders of all time. Focusing particularly on Washington's youth, North fully captures the spirit of the man as he examines his childhood in colonial Virginia, his early experiences as a member of the militia, and his many other adventures leading up to the Revolutionary War. The fully rounded person who emerges from this captivating portrait is uncomfortable with words, shy with women, totally at home in the outdoors, and deeply in love with the country he helped found.
