In this 400 page book, James Thomas Flexner writes an in-depth biography of Sir William Johnson. "A scholarly, stirring, and brightly written study of one of the half-dozen most interesting figures in 18th-century America before independence. Full of color and incident, it illuminates Indian life, the colonial frontier, the wars with the French, the economic forces based on furtrading and land speculation, and the tangled relations of the crown, royal governors, and New World assemblies. The personality of the central figure, the indomitable Sir William Johnson, has never before been so effectively depicted."
