This volume gives a short factual bio of the great man. The author dispels some of the myths of the generals childhood and paints a picture of a man who was greater than life. Published in 1922 the book is somewhat dated in language but I believe that the story is told better than it would be by modern revisionist historians.

Although the Amazon page doesn't show the wonderful cover, it shows the young George on a white horse--Washington's white charger became his trademark. Beautifully illustrated, and a direct, unfanciful text. A perfect introduction to the growing up and future of our first President, with no nonsense. The d'Aulaires were stylists and were accurate, visiting the sites. They won many prizes. They deserved every one. A perfect introduction to the life of George Washington.

Put this in your home library! My kids want more and more of this. They love history but get bored without pictures. This author makes the past people and places come alive for them. They remember and understand the detailed and engaging historical tales.

This D'Aulaire book is both beautiful and engaging. The illustrations are Grandma Moses"ish" and the text is captivating enough to hold the attention of young, squirmy boys. All of the D'Aulaire titles that we have seen are great and can all be found new at The Book Peddler online if not here on Amazon. Highly recommended!

I wonder why the free verson of this book appears below the ones for $3... in any case this is a wonderful read. Did you know George Washington was a millionaire be the time he was twenty? Tragic reasons behind that. How many times do you think George Washington cheated death? Plenty. An excellent story of an amazing man. Get it now!

Certainly not the easiest read in the Amazon collection, but assuredly a different portrayal of George Washington than you'll find in the more common "I cannot tell a lie" variety. I'm no scholar in histrionically figures, but this book had the ring of a fair and balanced presentation. Oh, and a Kindle freebie!

I enjoyed reading and seeing a side to an important founding father that I had not really known much about in the past. Yes, in school way back when, I would have found this more interesting and helpful than the trash we were given to read in our history books. I would say, read it. It gives you a lot, let's you ask questions about history in a good way. It does show the harshness of war and the sentiment of the times in a shortened form. It gave me an interest in learning more about him and others from our beginnings. Granted free always helps, but the information learned was excellent and insightful.

If you read Teddy Roosevelt's History of the United States first it will make more sense. Could be better written, author alludes to information but doesn't cover it in detail. Unfortunate in that with one or two sentences you would know what he is talking about rather than having to research it in wiki or google. Worth a read even with that criticism.
