Summary

"The Mind of a Patriot presents an intellectual life of a major figure who has traditionally been seen as an anti-intellectual "child of nature." This was the view of Patrick Henry that William Win presented in his Lift: of Hairy, and it has pervaded every biography since. Hayes presents a very different view of Henry. Starting with neglected pieces of evidence - the inventory of Henry's library - Hayes's unique perspective allows him to position Henry's lite within the intellectual currents of the day."--BOOK JACKET.
