Everyone who has read The Green Mountain Boys will welcome the first biography of Vermont’s historical novelist together with the first printing of his unfinished story The Honest Lawyer. Judge Thompson, like William Gilmore Simms, was influenced by Fenimore Cooper, and, as Carl Van Doren has said, “knew the Vermont frontier as Cooper knew that of New York.” In his half dozen novels, including The Green Mountain Boys, and its sequel, The Rangers, he has done more than any other person to keep alive the early traditions of Vermont. John Flitcroft’s account of Thompson’s life is drawn mainly from original sources, includes previously unpublished material, offers the first extended study of Thompson’s literary work, and is supplemented with a bibliography.
