Those turbulent sons of freedom : Ethan Allen's Green Mountain boys and the American Revolution by Christopher S Wren( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of Ethan Allen and the much-loved Green Mountain Boys of Vermont and their role in the American Revolution--the myth and the reality. A rare look at a corner of the Revolutionary War. In Those Turbulent Sons of Freedom, Wren overturns the myth of Ethan Allen as a legendary hero of the American Revolution and a patriotic son of Vermont and offers a different portrait of Allen and his Green Mountain Boys. They were ruffians who joined the rush for cheap land on the northern frontier of the colonies in the years before the American Revolution. Allen did not serve in the Continental Army but he raced Benedict Arnold for the famous seizure of Britain's Fort Ticonderoga. Allen and Arnold loathed each other. General George Washington, leery of Allen, refused to give him troops. In a botched attempt to capture Montreal against specific orders of the commanding American general, Allen was captured in 1775 and shipped to England to be hanged. Freed in 1778, he spent the rest of his time negotiating with the British but failing to bring Vermont back under British rule. Based on original archival research, this is a groundbreaking account of an important and little-known front of the Revolutionary War, of George Washington (and his good sense), and of a major American myth. Those Turbulent Sons of Freedom is an important contribution to the history of the American Revolution"--

The cat who covered the world : the adventures of Henrietta and her foreign correspondent by Christopher S Wren( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Japanese and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henrietta was just an ordinary New York City cat. But seventeen years of travel, criss-crossing the globe, made her an indispensable companion for foreign correspondent Christopher S. Wren and his family as he reported on world events. In Russia, Henrietta befriended Nobel Laureate Andrei Sakharov and disrupted a diplomatic dinner to present a mouse to the guest of honour. Lost for weeks in Egypt, she survived the wild streets of Cairo and vied with the Nile River rats for scraps. When she lived in Canada she learned to plough through snowdrifts like a sled dog and she spent her twilight years in South Africa jousting with exotic birds. Wren's hilarious account shows this ever-resourceful cat helping the family cope with adventures and chaos in faraway places
