Synopsis: Scribe Edith Ellis met the spirit of George Washington one evening in 1955. He contacted her from the Other Side to ask if she would serve as a channel so that he could dictate his autobiography for his "fellow American Patriots," believing that he had kept his personal feelings about his life far too  private. Edith agreed, although she was nearly blind and in her mid-70s. So began a most extraordinary partnership between Edith Ellis and the "Founding Father of America." The result is this remarkable book that has taken more than 60 years to reach the public. This book is a must-read for everyone who feels the spirit of the Founding Fathers surrounding us again.
