Something went wrong on our end.
You're in! We'll let you know when it's back.

Updated April 15: All books are sold.  

Working with the author, we were able to secure, on an exclusive basis, five new copies of this book, which has been out of print for some time. These will be signed by the author and inscribed as you indicate.

As of this evening, we have four left.

If the price seems high, it is  $100 lower than the new unsigned copies that are currently on one of the popular sites for quality used books, Abe Books.  

We haven't been able to get this book for a couple of years and are delighted to be able to offer it again, though the quantity is very limited.

Named "Book of the Year" by the American Revolution Round Table of Philadelphia.

Hardcover (400 pages), brand new and signed by the author, Sam Forman.

"This is the definitive biography of the Revolutionary War doctor and hero. An American doctor, Bostonian, and patriot, Joseph Warren played a central role in the events leading to the American Revolution. This detailed biography of Warren rescues the figure from obscurity and reveals a remarkable revolutionary who dispatched Paul Revere on his famous ride and was the hero of the battle of Bunker Hill, where he was killed in action. Physician to the history makers of early America, political virtuoso, and military luminary, Warren comes to life in this comprehensive biography meticulously grounded in original scholarship."

Dr. Forman—Sam's a medical doctor, which helped inform his writing about Dr. Joseph Warren—was one of three authors here in Boston who worked with me and helped launch History Camp

And he has the definitive site on Warren, where you can also see clips of some of Sam's speeches and read interviews, as well as learn more about Warren.

Also available, "Ill-Fated Frontier: Peril and Possibilities in the Early American West" - Signed by the author, Sam Forman
