    Who was the most famous man in the colonial and revolutionary periods of American history? One possible answer has to be Benjamin Franklin. From his birth at Boston, MA, in 1706, to his death at Philadelphia, PA, in 1790, this lively text chronicles the life of Franklin, who lived in turbulent times and met those times head-on with passion and gusto, including his early childhood, his running away to the City of Brotherly Love, his trips abroad to England and later France, his leadership in the American War for Independence, his status as elder statesman of the new republic, and his interests as scientist, inventor, and prolific author. And it is all told in highly readable story form.

    The reader will find information and insight into Franklins thinking and work that are absent from many other biographies about him for young people. It is noted that while Franklin had never been a church member and was suspect with the orthodox, at the same time he believed in God and that the most acceptable service we can render Him is in doing good to His other children. He had, when a young man, composed a touching and fervent prayer for himself which he used daily. Poor Richard is a must-have for any student who is learning about Ben Franklin. Author James Daugherty, who illustrated the book with energetic and dramatic two-color lithographs, also wrote biographies of Daniel Boone, which won a Newbery Medal in 1940, Abraham Lincoln, and Marcus Whitman.
