Meet the young Alexander Hamilton. As a man, he became famous as a Founding Father, first Secretary of the Treasure, aide to George Washington – and the face on the $10 bill. Children will meet the young “Alex” growing up in the Caribbean, where his love of reading was only exceeded by his dream to visit the land called America.
Alex’s days were filled with books and visits to the waterfront to greet the large ships from Europe – until the fateful day when his Uncle Peter insisted he learn to ride. Children will identify with Alec’s struggle to overcome his fear of horses and applaud his courage as he narrowly escapes a violent hurricane on horseback, all the while keeping his ye on the prize – school in America.
