Here is truly one of the most extraordinary lives imaginable, a man who, with only two years of formal education, became a printer, publisher, postmaster, philosopher, world-class scientist & inventor, statesman, musician, & abolitionist. Gaustad presents a chronological account of all these accomplishments, delightfully spiced with quotations from Franklin’s own extensive writings. Illustrations.
