Book Synopsis
When Boston Braved The King was written in 1899 and is a fictionalized story of the Boston Tea Party and the events starting in September 1773 leading up to it, told from the perspective of a 17-year-old apprentice housewright (carpenter specializing in building houses), named John Farwell, working under the John Crane, one of the Sons of Liberty and the only known person injured during the dumping of the tea into Boston Harbor.

John Farwell and his circle of apprentice friends seem to be fictional, but many true and notable names of the Boston colony play an active role in the book, with John encountering the likes of Paul Revere, John Hancock and Samuel Adams, while also taking verbal jabs at Tories (supports of George III) like Governor Hutchinson and parson Mather Byles.
