"[O'Toole] draws a fresh and subtle portrait of the sophisticated indigenous polities with whom the British dealt as allies, first against the French, later against the rebel settlers."
"Fintan O'Toole may load too much historical freight onto a biography of one man, exceptional as that one man may have been. But his scholarship, fluent prose and intellectual ambition combine to make this insightful book an absorbing, challenging read."
"[An] elegantly written biography....[Johnson's] sympathy for the Mohawks, fostered through friendship, kinship, and love, was remarkable, and O'Toole's evocation of it is one of the strengths of his book."
"Although he draws mostly from sources already published, O'Toole has written a biography that will enlighten specialists, especially those curious about the Irish roots of Johnson's comfort with split allegiances."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Brings a strikingly original perspective to Johnson?s life, and suggests new ways of thinking about Johnson?s part in creating a nation he did not live to see.
