George Washington's world by Genevieve Foster( Book )

31 editions published between 1941 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period measured by the life of George Washington 1732 to 1799 was one of revolution and change in many parts of the world as Enlightenment thinking took hold in the minds of men. Father Junipero Serra had just arrived in Mexico to work with the Panes Indians. Mozart and Bach were writing their immortal music. James Cook was sent by the Royal Society of London to Tahiti where their team of astronomers might observe a total eclipse of the sun and thereby accurately measure the distance between the earth and the sun. Foster's telling of the life story of George Washington does justice to the man it celebrates-- and to the world he lived in
