An exciting new paperback edition of the Newbery Medal-winning classic. The Year: 1773. The place: Boston. Johnny Tremain is fourteen and apprenticed to a silversmith. He is gifted and lords his skills over the other apprentices, until one day his hand is horribly burned by molten silver. Johnny's dreams of silversmithing are over. A depressed Johnny finds work as a dispatch rider for the Committee of Public Safety, a job that brings him in touch with Boston patriots--and the excitement that will lead to the Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington. Includes a new introduction by Newbery Honor Winner Gary D. Schmidt.

Review quote

"This is Esther Forbes at her brilliant best. She has drawn the character of Johnny with such sympathy and insight that he may take his place with Jim Hawkins, Huck Finn and other young immortals." --"BookWeek"
