"I walk on untrodden ground. There is scarcely any part of my conduct which may not hereafter be drawn into precedent."--George Washington

There have been many, many books about George Washington. His military skill was vital to American independence, and his conduct as the first President of the United States set the standard for every president thereafter.

Where Washington Walked chronicles Washington's path to his destiny, from the farm he inherited at age eleven, to the forests and marshes in which he battled alongside and (later) against the British, to the halls of government where he made his political mark, and, finally, to the fields of his beloved Mount Vernon, where he spent his last days. Sharp, contemporary photographs and clear, engaging text from award-winning photo-essayist Raymond Bial bring an immediacy to this legendary leader that enables young readers to see him in a fresh, new light.
