Bringing some of America's most influential men and women into sharp focus for readers 9 to 12, these succinct biographies by the author of The Extraordinary Suzy Wright include period illustrations, timelines, and sample writings by these historical figures.

The America that Alexander Hamilton knew was largely agricultural and built on slave labor, but he envisioned a multi-racial, urbanized, capitalistic America with a strong central government. But Hamilton's ideas and temperament put him at odds with his archrivals—one of whom would kill him. Elaborating on the basics covered in the musical Hamilton, this biography traces a life that epitomizes the American dream—a poor immigrant who made good in America.
