Illustrations and text describe bookseller Henry Knox's experiences during the American Revolution, detailing his plan to bring heavy artillery from Boston to aid Fort Ticonderoga and its success.
The first half of this book deftly portrays Knox as a likable, optimistic youth who sold books to both the Patriots and the Loyalists, while the second half shows him as a determined 25-year-old officer leading the expedition that freed Boston in 1776.

I just got 2 youth books on Henry Knox from the library. This book seemed to be more preferable, because it gives the reader more information of Henry and Boston pre-war.
However, regarding the trail Henry took to get back to Boston, the book has a section where Henry/cannons crossed Lake Champlain. This is NOT correct...they crossed Lake George. Thus, due to historical inaccuracy, I do NOT recommend this book.
