Benjamin Franklin: A Biography
Ronald W. Clark (au).
This fully documented account of the ‘first American’ gives a detailed & lively picture of the writer who invented the lightning conductor; the politician who spent years as emissary in London trying to prevent the American War of Independence; the statesman who, when war came, served as the U.S. representative in Paris, intriguing for French aid & American victory.
