Ethan Allen Reviews

"[An] engrossing treatment from an accomplished biographer." -- Philadelphia Enquirer
"Exhaustively researched and insightful." -- Wall Street Journal
"Graceful, authoritative...a gripping story of guts and elan...This balanced biography is equally adept in relating Allen's heroics, as in revealing his `intrigues as a frontier politician.'" -- Dallas Morning News
