Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 3-6. This well-designed book introduces George Washington through a clearly written biographical account of his life and achievements, illustrated with many sharply focused, well-composed photographs and a few reproductions of period paintings and prints. As in Bial's Where Lincoln Walked (1998), most of the color photos show places that the president might recognize if he returned today. These include the banks of the Rappahannock River at Ferry Farm (Washington's boyhood home), his house and farm at Mount Vernon, a reconstruction of Fort Necessity, and several buildings in colonial Williamsburg. An apt quotation from Washington introduces the appended source bibliography, followed by lists of recommended books and places to visit. Succinct biographies of America's first president are not difficult to find, but students and teachers alike will value this book for its unusually vivid photographic record of the sites related to Washington.

About the Author

Raymond Bial recently retired from his position as a college library director at the University of Illinois. He continues to create the beautiful photo-essays that have garnered him awards and high praise. His Amish Home was an ALA Notable Book, and, in a starred review, Booklist called his Tenement: Immigrant Life on the Lower East Side “an excellent example of how books can bring the past into the present.” Raymond lives in Urbana, Illinois, with his wife and two younger children, Sarah and Luke. His oldest daughter, Anna, is a fashion designer in New York City.

Format: Hardcover
This is a beautifully done photographic journey of George Washington's life. The amount of text is just right--enough to give you a good understanding of events in his life and the photographs you are seeing, without taking over the book. Don't misunderstand, I love to read! However I found it so enjoyable to be able to look at so many beautifully taken photographs of places and things in Washington's life...a treat!
