About This Book

For some strange reason, significant things seemed to happen to Patrick Henry on the 29th of May! Starting with his birthday, to the date he spoke on the floor of the House of Burgesses against England's stamp tax,  Patrick Henry was actively making his mark in American history. An accomplished planter, lawyer, and statesman, Henry was also recognized by his peers as being his own man; for instance, he was not one to wear the King's idea of dress: fine, ruffled silk shirts and silver-buckled shoes. Having grown up barefoot and less interested in the classroom formalities of school, his passion for fishing, hunting or arguing his point with anyone that would give him an ear, far exceeded his desire to be a scholar. Wherever he was, Henry was passionately speaking his mind concerning his native Virginia's need to be liberated from England's control.

Author Jean Fritz enlightens young readers to the well-known oratory style of Henry. She cleverly uses the date of May 29th to weave together the various stories surrounding Patrick Henry's life. Fritz's keen sense of humor and careful scholarship are apparent in this revealing portrait of the man who coined the unforgettable statement, "Give me liberty or give me death!"

Captivatingly illustrated by Margot Tome, who has been recognized for her depictions of 17th century America, this book has been named an ALA Notable Book, a New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year, and a Kirkus Reviews Choice Book.
