A Leap in the Dark

The Struggle to Create the American Republic

John Ferling

  • Paints a brilliant portrait of the American Revolution, one that is compelling in its prose, fascinating in its details, and provocative in its fresh interpretations
  • Offers a magisterial new history that surges from the first rumblings of colonial protest to the volcanic election of 1800
