Description

"Soldier, sailor, prisoner of war, and spy, Israel Potter's lively career leads to encounters with historic figures such as Ben Franklin, John Paul Jones, and George III. Based on the memoirs of a Revolutionary War veteran, this novel was acclaimed by The Village Voice as "hilarious, tender, expressive." This edition also includes Potter's autobiography, The Life and Remarkable Adventures of Israel R. Potter. "--
