The Boris Story: A Tail of Hope and Courage
This extensively researched and groundbreaking account by Sibert medalist Marc Aronson centers on events in the mid-18th century t...hat enabled Americans to give up their loyalty to England and form their own nation. Shedding new light on familiar aspects of American history, such as the Boston Tea Party, and ending with the aftermath of the American Revolution, Aronson approaches the events that shaped our country from a fresh angle and connects them to issues that still exist in modern times. Also developed throughout is the pioneering idea that the struggle for American independence was actually part of a larger conflict that spanned the globe, reaching across Europe to India. Packed with dramatic events, battles, and memorable figures such as George Washington and Tom Paine in America and Robert Clive in India, this insightful narrative provides a multi-layered portrait of how our nation came to be, while discovering anew the themes, images, and fascinating personalities that run through our entire history.

Excerpt from The Patriots, Vol. 1: The Story of Lee and the Last Hope"Patriotism," sententiously declares Dr. Samuel Johnson, "is ...the last refuge of a scoundrel!"Yet there have been not a few indifferent honest men who confute the dictum of the tea-drinking lexicographer, in that their chiefest glory was in their love of country; as Washington and Grant, Lincoln and Lee - to name four of our greatest.All these men are mentioned hereafter in these pages; two are merely referred to, a third plays a small but important part, while the whole romance revolves about the last. I have shown Lee in some of the supreme moments of his career: when he declined the chief command of all the armies of the United States to become a major-general in the Virginia line; when he took upon himself the blame for the fruitless assault at Gettysburg; when he would fain have led his men into the jaws of death, the veritable mouth of hell at Spottsylvania; and, lastly, - where character is most terribly tried, - in defeat at Appomattox.In every situation he was a great, a dominant figure. The character of Lee has been somewhat lost sight of in the study of his career, but it fairly glows with all that is high and noble and true. The Bayard of the South exhibits the characteristics of the Christian gentleman to the full. His is a personality to be studied, to be followed, to be loved. In his greatness and in his simplicity he is an enduring inspiration to true manhood for all America - the world even.I did not always think thus.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
