Format: Paperback
Recently transplanted to Vermont, I wanted to know more about the man whose namesake is lent to everything from tourist motels to air guard squadrons to think-tanks. Jellison's narrative paints a balanced portrait of a man whose legacy among latter-day Yankees approaches sainthood. This book tells the complete story (with due reverence where applicable) while resisting the urge to canonize. Jellison provides ample historical context to help armchair historians understand the motives and context behind the events. Very readable...a scholarly work unburdened by tangential footnotes and obscure allusions. Includes an index, a map, and a chapter-by-chapter bibliography.

Format: Paperback
A great read, well researched, well written, with powerful and compelling material. Unafraid to paint Ethan Allen as the bully and the scoundrel that he was (he had good qualities as well, but those are widely known). The author told me on one occasion a few years ago (before his death last year) that he had wanted to call the book "Ethan Allen: Frontier Bully" but the publisher nixed the title because it was perceived that this title would make the book less marketable in pro-Ethan Allen areas, i.e., Vermont. Having just finished the book, I now fully understand how appropriate that title would have been.

This is a very good book and also an excellent source for a research paper. I am a senior history major, and I found it to be very informative as well as entertaining.
