"A story of Boston in revolt"--Cover.
Originally published: United States : Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, 1943.
Introduction -- Up and about -- The pride of your power -- An earth of brass -- The rising eye -- The Boston Observer -- Salt-water tea -- The fiddler's bill -- A world to come -- The scarlet deluge -- 'Disperse, Ye rebels!' -- Yankee Doodle -- Man can stand up.
Fourteen-year-old Johnny Tremain, an apprentice silversmith with a bright future ahead of him, injures his hand in a tragic accident, forcing him to look for other work. In his new job as a horse-boy, riding for the patriotic newspaper, The Boston Observer, and as a messenger for the Sons of Liberty, he encounters John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and Dr. Joseph Warren. Soon Johnny is involved in the pivotal events shaping the American Revolution from the Boston Tea Party to the first shots fired at Lexington.
Newbery Medal, 1944
