Description

A story filled with danger and excitement, Johnny Tremain tells of the turbulent, passionate times in Boston just before the Revolutionary War.


Johnny, a young apprentice silversmith, is caught up with Otis, Hancock, and John and Samuel Adams in the exciting and dramatic operations and subterfuges leading up to the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington. As Johnny is forced into the role of a full-grown man in the face of his new country's independence, he finds that his relations with those he loves change for the better as well.


Winner of the Newbery Medal in 1943, the year of its publication, Johnny Tremain is historical fiction at its best, portraying Revolutionary Boston as a living drama, through the shrewd eyes of an observant boy.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Forbes's 1944 Newbery Medal-winning novel of a fourteen-year-old silversmith's apprentice chronicles the beginnings of the revolution in the American Colonies. In these days of quick-paced action, the multi-layered story may not be fast-moving enough for some listeners. Cassidy gives a rather pedestrian reading though the dialogue is quite sprightly. Her pauses separate each speaker so that changes of intonation are unnecessary. A more dramatic reading might easily destroy Forbes's delicate pacing. This introduction to American history is a classic and Cassidy's rendition is acceptable. S.B.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
