Publisher's Description

George Washington wanted to be a Virginia gentleman, like his brother Lawrence . . . until he got the chance to go on a wilderness trip as a surveyor's assistant. It was a rough-and even dangerous-journey. At times George got discouraged, but his grit and determination kept him going. His early trek into the American frontier was a turning point for George, and he proved he was ready for any challenge . . . from being a general in the Revolutionary War to becoming the first president of the United States!
Second in Judith St. George's new Turning Point series about major moments in the young lives of American presidents, this volume features vibrant illustrations by Daniel Powers.
