BON OF THUNDER: Patrick Henry

Email this review


An intimate portrait of an American who believed in independence and persuaded some of the best minds of his times to agree with him. A friendly, family-loving, straight-thinking liberal, Patrick Henry deserves the modern approach this author gives him. Many of the problems he tackled are with us still:- centralized government, freedom from domination by sectional cliques, civil liberties, states rights, change within the framework of democracy, foreign relations -- these are some of them. Pointed, interesting, keyed to the mature early teens -- and on up.
