Praise

“Well researched and organized, the book offers insights into the personalities, lives, and times of Burr and Hamilton. A fine choice . . .”--Booklist

“St. George employs the dual biography format with facility and flair, bringing these two historical figures to life.”–Horn Book

“This well-researched book includes an excellent bibliography and a fairly thorough index. It would be useful in a school setting, not only as a dual biography but also as an introduction to life, culture, and the politicalsystem in the United States in the late 1700s.”–Children’s Literature

“Well researched and even uses some primary sources, which helps readers get a real sense of who Hamilton and Burr really were and the impact their lives had on American history.”--VOYA

“St. George does an excellent job of presenting the stories of the two men . . . Readers who like historical fiction will find this equally intriguing and approachable.”–School Library Journal

“The author’s ability to lucidly explain the political intricacies of the time is impressive, revealing to readers that politics were as ugly, if not uglier, in the nation’s earliest days as they are now.”–Kirkus Reviews
