Meet the author, Peter Stark

Peter Stark, author of The Last Empty Places: A Past and Present Journey Through the Blank Spots on the American Map (Ballantine, 2010)
and Astoria: John Jacob Astor and Thomas Jefferson’s Lost Pacific Empire (Ecco, 2014) will be at the Irvington Public Library to discuss his
latest book, Young Washington: How Wilderness and War Forged America’s Founding Father (Ecco, 2018)  

Stark presents George Washington as a young man in his 20s and 30s, long before he became the “Father of Our Country.”  In his youth, George Washington was
egotistical, tempermental, driven by ambition and excessively thin-skinned.  Peter Stark argues that his experiences as a British Officer sent into the wilderness of the
Ohio River Valley honed the the young man into a leader of men.
