Becoming George Washington by Stephen Yoch

A far cry from the powdered-haired general or president discussed in most Washington biographies, Becoming George Washington reveals young Washington as an action hero at the epicenter of the French & Indian War.

Becoming George Washington follows Washington through harrowing battles as well as witnessing his success—and failure—leading an army in the field. At the same time, the book explores George's complex relationships with his difficult mother and caring brothers.

Notably, the novel contains an affair between George and Sally Fairfax. While highly controversial, the liaison is supported by documentation, including letters written by George.

Becoming George Washington includes detailed author's notes providing sources and commentary on events so the reader may know and understand the real story.

I really enjoyed reading Becoming George Washington and felt intrigued to learn the early years of George Washington. Its amazing to learn how George went through challenges and how he overcome them. I also enjoyed learning how he was determined to make it to the top despite what stands in the way. This book made me want to learn more about his life and I hope to see another book in the series to read the other part of his life as well.
