Publisher's Summary

On a freezing night in 1778, General George Washington vanishes. Walking away from the Valley Forge encampment, he takes a fall and is knocked unconscious, only to reappear at a dog park on San Francisco Bay - in the summer of 2014. 

Washington befriends two Berkeley 20-somethings, who help him cope with the astonishing - and often comical - surprises of the 21st century. 

Washington's absence from Valley Forge, however, is not without serious consequences. As the world rapidly devolves around them - and their beloved Giants fight to salvage a disappointing season - George, Tim, and Matt are catapulted on a race across America to find a way to get George back to1778. 

Equal parts time travel tale, thriller, and baseball saga, Finding George Washington is a gripping, humorous, and entertaining look at what happens when past and present collide in the ninth inning, with the bases loaded and no one warming up in the bullpen.

Great Plot/Wonderfull Narration

Science Fiction, history, baseball, politics, drama, all rolled together with a healthy dash of humor. The narrator captures the voice of George Washington brilliantly. The other actors voices are crafted beautifully. The drama keeps you listening. I would recommend this for teens to Seniors. Great entertainment for everyone.

Entertaining

This was a time travel story that revolved around baseball as it related to life. It starts when George Washington finds himself in a strange environment after going for a walk for some fresh air at Valley Forge. He is found by a young college student and the entire book involves the student and his friends trying to get George Washington back to his own time to save the revolution.

The book is full of modern day cliches that might not relate well to everyone, but is entertaining enough.

The narration was outstanding.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.
