Ben Franklin - Inventing America
Ben Franklin - First Patriot, First Citizen
He was an inventor, a scientist, a best-selling author, and a father of our country.
Born poor in Boston, Benjamin Franklin ran away from home to Philadelphia where he made his fortune before giving it all up to explore science and serve his country.
Eminent historian Thomas Fleming introduces us to this self-made man who invented the lightening rod, explored the Gulf Stream, and made the first electric battery. Ben's charm, humor, and keen understanding of human nature guided the American colonies to independence and nationhood.
"Fleming has added new depth…to a familiar subject of biographies…There are many quotations from Franklin's writings and many anecdotes and bits of information not usually included in other books…Above all, the vigor and informality of the writing make this a pleasure to read."
ZENA SUTHERLAND, THE BEST IN CHILDREN'S BOOKS
About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.
Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
Award-winning author Thomas Fleming has received critical praise for both his fiction and non-fiction. Liberty! The American Revolution was written in conjunction with a six part series for PBS, and he also served as principal commentator on that network's four-part documentary, Long Journey Home, The Story of the Irish in America.
