George Washington: A Man of Action by John Kaminski paints an intimate word portrait of the Father of America. Perhaps no other person could ever achieve the preeminent position in American history and culture occupied by George Washington. Born in 1732, Washington's life-long commitment to self-improvement and discipline helped him become a legend in his own lifetime. Whether as a statesman, military man, or America's first president, Washington created a legacy that has scarcely diminished in over two centuries. Yet the passage of time and the superlatives reserved for Washington have knit together and made it difficult to find the real man. During his decades of research on the U.S. Constitution and America's founding figures, historian and editor Kaminski has amassed an extraordinary body of quotations that brings us closer to the essence of this great leader.
