Patrick Henry and the Frigate's Keel

(1945)
A collection of stories by

 
Twelve tales of the United States' early days, capturing moments in the lives of great leaders and farmers alike, all dreaming of the nation to come

Written mostly while the United States was engaged in World War II, these patriotic stories imagine the best of the American spirit during its formative years. From "The Day of Victory," about a victorious George Washington meeting with his generals one last time to swap stories before they all return to civilian life, to "The Bookman," about a tragic day during the Revolutionary War as experienced by a young boy, each story depicts common citizens standing against tyranny, and settlers searching for a better life.

Passionate and beautifully written, Patrick Henry and the Frigate's Keel is one of Howard Fast's best story collections, and a moving tribute to the aspirations of a new nation.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author's estate.
