Johnny Tremain is fourteen and apprenticed to a silversmith.  He is gifted and clever and lords his talent over the other apprentices - until tragedy strikes.  A crucible of molten silver breaks, and the silver spills over Johnny's right hand.  The hand is so badly burned, it's useless - and now, so is Johnny.

Since he is no longer able to become a silversmith, Johnny's life takes a new path, one that will bring him in touch with Paul Revere, John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and other Boston patriots and with all the exciting currents that will lead to the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington.  Johnny's dream of being a silversmith may be dead, but he has discovered a new dream that will make him a part of American history.
