KIRKUS REVIEW

And he provides Jeanette Eaton with an inspiring figure for a better than competent biography. She has shown him as a man of integrity who, practically single-handed, established good relations with France, who in his time was honored as the most popular of Americans and helped win recognition for the young nation. She traces his many faceted career- Franklin here, Franklin there, Franklin everywhere- as printer, as author, as postmaster, as ambassador of the Colonies to France, as representative to England. A book highly recommended for reference, schoolroom research, public libraries.
