Description
A folk hero of 19th-century New England, and a friend to Bronson Alcott, Joseph Palmer was imprisoned for wearing a beard—and for being stubborn enough to refuse to shave it. Palmer liked to do things his own way, explains Patricia Rusch Hyatt in this true-life tall tale. Strange as it might seem today, no one wore beards in the 1830s, and Palmer's long flowing whiskers caused quite a commotion. When a gang of men tried to shave him forcibly, he fought back, and ended up in jail. Hyatt depicts Palmer as a man who stood up for his rights, regardless of public opinion, and Kathryn Brown's watercolors capture the rough-and-tumble nature of American life almost 200 years ago in this book for readers 5 to 9.
