Product Description

Peter Francisco had a stamp issued in his honor and monuments to his name may be found in over three states-- yet many have never heard of the "Hercules of the Revolution". Born to a wealthy family in the Azores Islands in 1760, Peter Francisco was kidnapped at the age of 5 and raised as a slave on a plantation in Virginia. After falling in love with a woman whose life he helped to save, Peter realized he could never marry her unless he was free. Driven with passion for freedom, he joined the Continental Army and he became famous not only for his towering 6'6", 260 lb. stature, but also for his extraordinary strength, bravery, and courage on the battlefield. 330 pages, softcover.

    This is a worthy story crying out for an excellent craftsman of historical fiction for children. This descendent biographer of Peter Francisco did not even come close. The book is 1/2 children's fiction, with a poorly written, unnecessarily injected love scene that boosts it into another category and, I suspect, was suggested by the publisher in a failed effort to cross-market this badly written, poorly imagined work of historical fiction. Peter Francisco seems to have been large in every way; unfortunately this book doesn't do him justice. I trashed my copy and am surprised to find it on CBD's list.
