Description
 
When he was 17 years old, Ben Franklin ran away from home. He wanted a better life. Soon he became a rich man; but Ben wanted to help other people. He began a fire company and a police force; he built a library. Ben found out new things about electricity; his work saved people’s lives. Then Ben tried to solve problems between England and the colonies; nothing worked. War broke out. During the war, Ben lived in France; he raised money to help pay for guns. America won the war; Ben never stopped working to make the world a better place. This is the story of how he succeeded. Full-color illustrations. Juvenile audiences.
