“Proves the truth is at least as exciting as fiction…Palmer keeps the biography in fast-forward by choosing deftly the historical high points and fascinating facts that keep children reading. The illustrations by her son, James H. Palmer, Jr., surround the text on every page. Forts and forests, raids and rivers, maps and portraits of the Patriots bring the tale vividly to life…In addition to being a great story, the book is an excellent research tool...This book works for any age.”
Fran Hawk, The Charleston Post and Courier – 2006
------- “Kate Palmer’s articulate and informative text is effectively combined with James Palmer’s superbly executed illustrations to provide young readers with an engaging biography of one of the Revolution’s more colorful characters and successful military leaders whose exploits in South Carolina against the British became an inspiration to George Washington’s often beleaguered American forces elsewhere in the war. Francis Marion and theLegend of the Swamp Fox is as educational and an enthusiastically recommended addition to family, school and community library American History reference collections in general, and American Revolutionary History supplemental lists in particular.”
