Philip G. Smucker, a fifth-great-grandnephew of George Washington, uses his background as a war correspondent, sports reporter and amateur equestrian to weave an insightful tale based upon his own travels in the footsteps and hoofprints of Washington as a surveyor, sportsman and field commander. As often as possible, he saddles up and charges off to see what Washington’s woods, byways and battlefields look like from atop a saddle. Riding with George is a “boots-in-stirrups” story that unspools Washington’s rise to fame in a never-before-told yarn. It shows how a young Virginian’s athleticism and Old World chivalry propelled him to become a model of right action and good manners for a fledgling nation.
Philip G. Smucker is a journalist, professor, research fellow at the National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon and author of My Brother, My Enemy and Al Qaeda’s Great Escape. He lives in Virginia.
