John Hubbard was one of the most good spirited, enthusiastic, and fascinating teachers I ever had. He was full of appreciation for history, convinced of its importance, and never, ever boring about it. And that same strength and appeal are to be found throughout this delightful book. He was an extremely interesting man who led an extremely interesting, adventurous life and its’ all here.
