    A masterful account of this most amazing American. A biography of Franklin written with a sweep and verve worthy of its subject and brilliantly illustrated. The New Yorker. This superb biography of the printer, statesman, author, reformer, inventor and ambassador reveals a Benjamin Franklin who in his time lived more lives than many men together. The brilliance and inexhaustible ingenuity of mind that fascinated his contemporaries continues to charm us now in Daughertys work of perhaps Americas most distinguished citizen and most interesting human being. Here is an understanding of the Poor Richard that underlay all Franklins life, through honors and distinctions, foreign and domestic, saying with shrewd Yankee economy: Well done is better than well said. As with all of Daughertys books, his illustrations of two- and three-color compliment the meaty text for the enjoyment of all. (description by Beautiful Feet)

We then learn of his contemporaries including: the journeys of three French explorers: Marquette, Joliet and LaSalle; Louis XIV, the King of France, who ruled for seventy two years; mogul emperors of India and the Taj Mahal; the great age of Science (Sir Isaac Newton and Edward Halley); Kang-Hse the great Manchu ruler of China and Peter the Great of Russia. We also revisit William Penn and learn of the many disasters that he experienced and how he came to return to England for his final days. Black and white illustrations, SC, 192 pgs. ~ Deanne

    This book by Caroline Dale Snedeker tells about an ancient Roman girl named Lavinia who is banished to Britain with the rest of her family. Lavinia is enchanted by the island even though her family sees it as a barbaric place. The book contrasts the cultures of the early British Christians with the pagan Roman aristocracy, and that setting makes a good background for Lavinias story. Lavinia eventually converts to Christianity and falls in love with a Christian man, but she must deal with her pagan family and her fathers plans for her marriage. A dramatic and entertaining novel, this book offers a great look at Roman life in Gaul and Britian. 210 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
