From the Back Cover

The real story of our nation's founding.
"Tempest atDawn adheres closely to Madison's notes when describing what occurred in theAssembly Room. But James Best uses the imagination of the novelist to constructwhat might have occurred in the taverns, salons, dining rooms and inns. He alsodraws on historical data to present us with the personalities of the majorparticipants in the convention. The result is a readable, engaging story of thecreation of our Constitution."--Eutychus the Scribe

"The bookbrings our founders to life with great writing, historic accuracy and amazingwit."--On Transmigration
"Many a volumehas been written about the writing of the Constitution. The Summer of 1787 andTempest At  Dawn are two of the bettervolumes I have read on the subject."--Daddypundit
