Simultaneously with the release of a paperback edition of his acclaimed biography Washington: A Life (Penguin), Ron Chernow presents a revealing portrait of Washington through his own words. A young officer leading an attack that triggered a global struggle for empire. Commander of the ill-equipped and undermanned Continental Army in the War of Independence. Presiding delegate to the Constitutional Convention. First President of the United States. George Washington, the indispensable founder of the American republic, was at the heart of events of worldwide importance. He was also, as revealed in this selection introduced by his Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer, a writer of remarkable clarity, energy, force, and eloquence. This career- spanning selection includes detailed notes, an essay on the selection of texts, and a chronology of Washington's life.

"To encounter Washington in his writings is to confront a notably hot-blooded and opinionated man, not the reticent sphinx of American myth." -Ron Chernow
