Eyes of Fire: Thomas Paine and the American Revolution
When the British fired Thomas Paine it cost him his marriage - but it cost the British their American colonies. Written in the form of a script, Eyes of Fire tells how Thomas Paine rose from obscurity to become, in Murray Rothbard's words, "the voice of the American Revolution and the greatest single force in propelling it to completion and independence." Eyes of Fire puts you in the thick of the action, from the Tea Party to Trenton. Experience history as moving drama, rather than dry narrative, and learn how Thomas Paine did more than any Founder to assure an independent United States.

The American Crisis
Relighting the ﬁre
The problems intensify
A daring approach
Saved from the ﬂames
