"In this action-packed history, award-winning author Harlow Giles Unger unfolds the epic story of Patrick Henry, who roused Americans to fight government tyranny both British and American. Remembered largely for his cry for "liberty or death," Henry was actually the first (and most colorful) of America's Founding Fathers first to call Americans to arms against Britain, first to demand a bill of rights, and first to fight the growth of big government after the Revolution. And as Unger makes clear in this gripping biography, Henry's words continue to echo across America, inspiring millions to fight big governmnet intrusion in their daily lives"--P. [4] of cover.
