A collection of 17 brief biographies which attempt to collectively capture the variety of experience encountered by people during the American Revolution. Historians detail the lives of famous people such as frontiersman Daniel Boone as well as common foot soldiers. Also included are biographies of a British Loyalist, and Quaker pacifist and opponent of slavery, a Cherokee warrior, and a former slave who founded one of the first African Episcopalian churches. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Neil R. Stout
The writing is uniformly excellent and the subjects well chosen—and only half the biographies are about white males. This collection should appeal to a wide audience. I will certainly use it in my American Revolution course.
Peter H. Wood
It would take an American Hogarth to paint such a group of intriguing men and women from different classes, religions, races, and regions. But all of us can now explore and compare these diverse and well-documented lives, relating them to the more familiar faces and places of the Revolutionary era.
John M. Murrin
In this wonderful collection of concise and imaginative essays, the editors convey the immense diversity of the American Revolution in a way that no conventional narrative ever could. Reading these essays is a real pleasure.
Jack N. Rakove
A fascinating potpourri of lives of Revolutionary era Americans, each different, each illuminating, all presenting a complex portrait of the lived experiences of late eighteenth-century Americans.
