Product Description

A young Frenchman of nineteen traveling across the sea to help a struggling nation fight for its independence? Why not? To Lafayette, anything was possible. A man who threw off the boundaries imposed upon him to stand up for what he believed was right, the Marquis de Lafayette grew from an idealistic young man searching for honor and glory, into an idealist statesman with rock-solid principles of liberty. Here, Jean Fritz brings to life the exciting story of the brave and appealing man known as the Hero of the New World.

    A Young Lady
    I really enjoyed this book. I love biographies. Jean Fritz is one of my most favorite authors, and Lafayette is one of my favorite historical figures. I love it when it informs us that Adrienne, his wife, was so "wildly in love with him that she felt faint when she simply looked at him". I think it is romantic. I nearly burst into tears when she perishes. In any case, Lafayette was an amazing man, and it is very likely that our victory was because of him. He was like a son to George Washington, and was a true hero.
