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.

Esther Forbes was born in Westborough, Massachusetts. After attending school in Wisconsin, she served on the editorial staff at Houghton Mifflin Company. She published a number of adult historical fiction books and two highly acclaimed young adult books: the Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Revere and the World He Lived In and the Newbery Medal winner Johnny Tremain.

Grace Conlin (1962–1997) was the recording name of Grainne Cassidy, an award-winning actress and acclaimed narrator. She was a member of the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, DC, and won a Helen Hayes Award in 1988 for her role in Woolly Mammoth’s production of Savage in Limbo.

Reviews

“This is Esther Forbes at her brilliant best…Johnny may well take his place with Jim Hawkins, Huck Finn, and other young immortals.”

“This introduction to American history is a classic.”

“To read Johnny Tremain is to live through two dramatic years of our country’s history, and to see these great events through the shrewd eyes of an observant boy.”
