About this Item

Book is clean and tightly bound with just a small wrinkle to crown of spine. No names or writing and pages clean and tightly bound with just a bit of light toning to paper. Jacket shows a few nicks with loss of color to spots along front spine and to top of same edge at back and small chips to crown and tail, but has not been price-clipped and is most handsome in brand new mylar. A lively look at two years and three meetings of the First Continental Congress. The author spells out the issues that tore them apart and the shared misfortunes which brought them together. Though the liberal faction of England raised its collective voiceon behalf of the colonies, it was the Continental Congress that was in the trenches fighting the good fight for freedom. The book's title comes from the fact that conservatives referred to John Adams and his ilk as "the violent men." 278 pages. Indexed. Bookseller Inventory # 19987

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
