Publisher Summary

The inspiring biography of our first president’s childhood years

George Washington wanted to be a Virginia gentleman like his brother Lawrence until he got the chance to go on a wilderness trip as a surveyor’s assistant. It was a difficult—and even dangerous—journey. At times, George got discouraged, but his grit and determination kept him going. This early trek into the American frontier was a turning point for George, and it proved he was ready for any challenge…from being a general in the Revolutionary War to becoming the first president of the United States!
