Hardcover, Import

Product description


"Sprinkling excerpts from his letters and diaries throughout to allow its subject to speak in his own voice, the narrative makes a convincing case for Washington's place as the nation's First Farmer. . . . Backmatter includes a timeline, author's notes on both Mount Vernon and Washington the slaveholder, resources for further exploration and a bibliography." --Kirkus Reviews

* "Students will find this title useful for reports, but will also find it a great nonfiction read." --School Library Journal, starred review

* "Exquisite artwork. . . . Should be included in library collections because of its unusual treatment of George's lifetime achievements." --Library Media Connection, starred review
