Cover of: Benjamin Franklin | Fleming, Thomas J.

About the Book

Perhaps more than even Washington, Jefferson, or Adams, Ben Franklin is the Founding Father who best exemplifies the authentic American spirit and values. Eminent historian Thomas Fleming paints a lively portrait of this self-made man blessed with a wealth of talents: a best-selling author, the most important newspaper publisher in America, and a world-renowned scientist and inventor before he took on the task of becoming the true "Father" of American independence. Fleming's remarkable story of how Franklin worked behind the scenes to ensure the success of the American Revolution will inspire readers of all ages.
