From Benjamin Franklin's beginnings as a journalist at age sixteen to his retirement from public affairs at eighty-two, there was no break in his activity and accomplishments. As a writer, inventor, and statesman, he was--and still is--unsurpassed by anyone in the range of his natural gifts and the important uses to which he put them.
In this monumental biography, which won the Pulitzer Prize when first published in 1939, Carl Van Doren incorporates materials from Franklin's letters, manuscripts, journals, and published works to give the most accurate and comprehensive portrait ever written of this great American.
