Summary
  • Illustrations and text describe bookseller Henry Knox's experiences during the American Revolution, detailing his plan to bring heavy artillery from Boston to aid Fort Ticonderoga and its success
  • The first half of this book deftly portrays Knox as a likable, optimistic youth who sold books to both the Patriots and the Loyalists, while the second half shows him as a determined 25-year-old officer leading the expedition that freed Boston in 1776
