Tom Paine, Freedom's Apostle
By Leo Gurko
With hardly any education or money and only Ben Franklin's letter of introduction, Tom Paine goes to America and writes Common Sense, the first of his revolutionary pamphlets. The power and vision of Paine's writings and the violent feelings they aroused throughout his life are evident in this biography.
