Johnny Tremain

by Esther Forbes


Quick Overview

This is historical fiction at its best, portraying Revolutionary Boston as seen through the shrewd eyes of a young apprentice silversmith. Features an Afterword by the author.


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. Size 0.83" H x 7.01" L x 4.31" W, 272 pages
